When I was first introduced to pressure cookers, risotto was one of the dishes that convinced me to buy one. I was skeptical that decent risotto was even possible without constant stirring, but amazingly, it is! I love the combination of artichokes and spinach in risotto, but try any cooked vegetables you like.
