What You Get

Mascarpone cheese

What You’ll Need

Olive oil

Dry white wine (optional)

Salt and freshly ground pepper


Makes 4 servings

Active Time: 20 minutes 

Total Time: 40 minutes 

Step 1

Trim the sugar snaps, removing the strings if necessary, and slice the sugar snaps into bite-sized pieces. Chop the onion. Chop 4 cloves of garlic. Chop the chives. 

Step 2

Set the Instant Pot to the sauté setting, and warm 3 tablespoons olive oil. Add the onion and sauté until soft, 5 minutes. Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, 30 seconds. 

Step 3

Add 2 cups of the rice, stir to coat, and sauté until lightly toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add 1 cup wine or water and simmer to reduce slightly, 2 minutes. Add 3½ cups of the vegetable broth and 1 cup water, and season with 1 tablespoon salt. Cover, seal the vent, and cook on low pressure until the rice is al dente and the liquid is creamy, 5 minutes. Quick release the pressure, 5 minutes. 

Step 4

Meanwhile, in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the sugar snaps and sauté until bright green and tender-crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon butter, season with salt, and toss to melt and coat, 1 minute. Remove from the heat. 

Step 5

Stir ½ cup of the mascarpone and the juice of the lemon into the risotto, and season with salt to taste. 

Step 6

Spoon the risotto into bowls and top with the sautéed snap peas. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle generously with Parmesan and chives. Grind with pepper and serve warm. 

Contains: milk.

Note: The broth may arrive frozen for freshness. Store it in the refrigerator to defrost before cooking. If you need to defrost it same day, microwave on high, 2 to 3 minutes.
