Before you start

A pressure-cooker will reduce the risotto cooking time to 7 min. A blender or a food processor will be very useful for this recipe. The quantities given here are based on this recipe served as main course.


  1. Finely chop the onion and celery. Clean the strawberries, then put them in a blender, setting a few strawberries aside as a garnish. Mix 1-2 min, until a red purée is obtained.
  2. Heat the broth in a small saucepan on the stove or in a microwave oven. Keep it warm while cooking the risotto (about 20 min).
  3. Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet or saucepan. Sauté the onion and celery 2-3 min, until the onion becomes translucent. Add the rice, then cook 1-2 min, with constant stirring, until the rice grains are well toasted and translucent. Stir in the strawberry purée. Pour in the white wine.
  4. Cook the risotto, using the warmed broth until the rice is creamy but still al dente. Remove from the heat and let stand for 2 min. Season with salt (not much if the broth is salty) and pepper to taste. Garnish with the reserved strawberries, then serve.
