Strawberries Risotto


1 1/2 cup of Strawberries (220 g)
1 Stem of Celery, thinly cut (50 g)
1 Onion, cut thinly (200 g)
1 soup spoon of Butter (15 g)
2 soup spoons of Olive Oil (30 mL)
1 2/3 cup of Arborio Rice (300 g)
1 cup of White Wine (250 mL)
2 cups of Warm Chicken Stock (500 mL)
Salt and Pepper to taste


1. Put the Strawberries in the bowl of a culinar robot, but reserve some for the final garnishing. Mix untill you get a vivid red smooth Coulis, so for about 1 minute. Reserve.

2. In a saucepan, brown the Onion and the Celery in the Butter and the Olive Oil for 3 minutes untill they become translucid. Add the Rice and sauté everything for 2 minutes,stirring it. Add the Wine and the Strawberries Coulis.

3. Add the Warm Stock, gradually, about from 1/2 to 3/4 each time, just enough to cover the Rice, just make sure the Rice absorb each addition of Liquid. You must keep the Stock very warm during the whole preparation.

4. The Risotto is ready about 20 minutes later, when the Grains won't absorb anymore Liquid and are tender on their exterior but still firm in their interior (Al Dente). Near the end, if the Rice isn't yet finished cooking and you don't have any Stock left, you can use Water instead.

5. Leave it to rest 2 minutes. Season with Salt (not much if the Stock is already salted) and Pepper to taste. Garnish with the reserved Strawberries and serve.
