I have just got my hands on a jar of Patty’s Peppers (Uncle Joe’s Original Recipe – Sweet Heat) and a lot of Collard Greens showed up in my organic produce delivery from MistfitsMarket. When I tasted the peppers, I instantly thought that these peppers would taste great with the collards in a Vegetarian Risotto! And OMG – Amazing! With the Instant Pot, you can enjoy Vegetarian Risotto without all the stirring! I also can’t wait to make more recipes with these delicious peppers!
