  • Salt, to taste

  • 1/ 4 cup olive oil
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 cup milk, of choice
  • 1/ 2 cup Parmesan cheese


  • Step 1

    Turn Instant Pot to sauté, then add the onion, celery, carrots, garlic, red pepper, salt, and pepper and sauté with 1-2 tablespoons olive oil for 2-3 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Then, add rice and 32 ounces vegetable broth and pressure cook for 15 minutes.

    While the rice is cooking, cook the mushrooms: heat olive oil in a large skillet, then add the mushrooms and thyme and sauté until the mushrooms are crispy, about 5 minutes; set aside.

  • Step 4

    Once the Instant Pot beeps, pressure release it and carefully open the lid. Stir in the milk, cheese, the rest of the broth and HALF of the mushrooms.
