Pressure Cooker Lemon Risotto

with Summer Squash

Summer is almost here! So we’re developing our menu for the season. And this pressure cooker lemon risotto with summer squash is an absolute must for the warmer months! It’s bright and creamy, with a simple-to-execute method. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did making it!

What would you serve with this dish?

We’ve had a few people tell us that they’ve simply added chicken to this risotto and they loved it! I, on the other hand, would recommend eating this dish with a nice piece of broiled fish. Lemon and fish are best friends, so this is a no-brainer for me.

    This was just okay for my taste. I think it would have been better without the zest. I added chicken to even out the strong flavor. But I do LOVE your Grandma B’s Chicken and Rice!!
