    SPRING RISOTTO OF ARTICHOKE, LEMON, GARLIC, AND MINT
    from "Passionate Vegetarian" by Crescent Dragonwagon

    For this recipe, you'll need to cook the artichokes ahead of time. Also note that I call for scissoring, rather than chopping the chives; snipping is much easier and crushes the chives less.

    Serves 4 to 6
    INGREDIENTS (CLICK TO BUY)

    Cooking spray
    1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon butter
    1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 small red onion, finely chopped
    2 tablespoons chopped garlic
    2 cups white or brown Arborio rice
    1/2 cup dry white wine, at room temperature
    4 1/2 cups vegetable stock, warmed
    1 lemon, half the rind grated, the pulp halved and juiced
    1/4 to 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
    2 tablespoons finely snipped chives
    4 artichokes, hearts and stems only, cooked and thickly sliced
    2/3 cup finely chopped mint leaves
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

    PREPARATION

    1. Spray a pressure-cooker pot with cooking spray. Over medium heat, melt the butter and oil together in the cooker. Add the onion and sauté, stirring, until it has softened slightly but is not browned, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds more.
    2. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute, until the grains are shiny and glossed lightly with oil. Raise the heat slightly and stir in the wine. Stir until the wine is mostly absorbed (much less than 1 minute for white rice, and 1 1/2 to 2 minutes for brown).
    3. Pour in all but 1/2 cup of the heated stock. Add the lemon rind and juice, and turn the heat to high. Lock the lid in place and bring the pressure to high over high heat. Once the pressure is reached, cook 5 minutes if using white Arborio, or 19 if using brown.
    4. When time is up, release the pressure. Unlock the lid. Stir in the remaining broth and the cheese, if using. Stir in the artichokes, mint, and chives. Season to taste with salt and plenty of pepper. Serve at once.
