Ham, Leek and Mushroom Risotto


  • In pressure cooker heat oil and butter (using the meat function with an open lid), add the leeks and sauté until softening, then add the mushrooms and garlic and cook for 2 minutes (still using the meat function).
  • Add rice, stir thoroughly and then add stock.  Once desired browning and sautéing has been achieved, simply select the Warm/ Cancel button to stop the cooking function being used and move on to using another menu function if required in this recipe.
  • Close the pressure cooker and cook for 10 minutes (using the meat function on the delicate setting).
  • Once cooked, release the pressure, open the lid and stir in the Parmesan cheese and ham and serve immediately.
