Asparagus and Mushroom Risotto
It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that you can make risotto in your rice cooker. Our multicookers do way more than just steam perfect rice.
Now for this easy risotto recipe, simply place your rice, sliced mushrooms, asparagus and onions into the inner pot of your rice cooker and pour in your vegetable broth. When you use the Slow Cook setting for 75 minutes, your multi-functional rice cooker will prepare a velvety and creamy risotto while you kick your feet up! Once the timer sounds off, just mix in butter and salt and pepper – then top with grated Parmesan. That’s it!
The flavors of this easy asparagus and mushroom risotto are super savory with umami – with little pops of garden freshness from the asparagus florets.
