Risotto rice keeps absorbing liquid after you turn off the heat. If you let your risotto sit too long before serving, it will get dry and sticky. To keep this from happening quickly stir in a little more warm stock just enough to bring creaminess back to the rice right before you serve it.
To make this recipe without a pressure cooker use our Basic Risotto recipe, grilling the radicchio and adding it at the end of step 4 of the basic recipe.
Radicchio is a round red and white lettuce-like veggie whereas Treviso is elongated in the way of Belgian Endive. Both are great for this dish.
