Rice cooked in a broth with an arugula and parsley coulis.
Adding a bit of cold butter to a risotto at the end of cooking makes it plumper, creamier, and looser so that it forms "waves". We call it a «risotto all'onda». The green colour here adds to the impression of fields of green.
|1/2 bunch||arugula||80 g|
|2 tbsp||Italian parsley, fresh||10 g|
|1/4 cup||water||65 mL|
|1/2||onions, finely chopped||100 g|
|1 1/2 cup||chicken broth, approximately||375 mL|
|1 tbsp||olive oil||15 mL|
|2 tbsp||butter, unsalted||28 g|
|3/4 cup||arborio rice||150 g|
|2 tbsp||Parmesan cheese, grated||6 g|
|2 tbsp||chervil [optional]||5 g|
|ground pepper to taste [optional]|
Before you start
- Clean the arugula, parsley, and chervil: discard any withered leaves and any tough parts, then wash rapidly, but carefully, without letting them soak in water. Drain the leaves, then transfer them to a blender. Add the water, nutmeg, and pepper to taste. Mix 2 min, until a green purée is obtained. Set aside.
- Finely chop the onion. Heat the broth in a small saucepan on the stove or in a microwave oven. Keep it warm while cooking the risotto (which will take about 20 min).
- Melt the oil and half of the butter in a saucepan. Add the onion and sauté 2-3 min, until translucent, then add the rice. Toast the grains 1-2 min (until translucent), with constant stirring.
- Cook the risotto, using the warmed broth until the rice is creamy but still al dente, about 20 min, then stir in the green purée, adding it in 2 or 3 portions. Remove the saucepan from the heat, then whisk in the remaining butter and grated Parmesan cheese. Let stand for 2 min. Season with salt (not much if the broth is salty) and pepper to taste.
- Spoon the risotto into dishes and serve.
