Rice cooked in a broth with strawberries.
A no-brainer that looks like a showy chef meal, and tastes just wonderful.
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.
- 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.
- 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).
- Heat the 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.
- 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.
