2. Prepare Strawberry Risotto

Here you find my step by step instructions for the wonderful strawberry risotto:

Risotto rice and onions while sautéing.

Sweat risotto rice with finely chopped spring onions or shallots in a pot with a little butter and olive oil for 2-3 minutes until colourless. Professional chefs call this rice toast. Then deglaze the risotto with dry white wine and add the vegetable stock. Cook the risotto for about 18 minutes stirring.

Preparing fresh strawberries for the strawberry risotto

Wash and dry the strawberries briefly, halve 2 decorative strawberries with green per serving.

Mix the strawberries briefly and quickly with a hand blender.

Add strawberry puree to the risotto.

Add the mixed strawberries to the risotto towards the end of cooking. The risotto is already cooked firm to the bite. Do not boil the risotto after adding the strawberry puree in order to preserve the strawberry flavour. Season the risotto with salt, pepper, nutmeg, some cayenne pepper and a little finely grated cheese, butter and olive oil and stir until creamy and liquid.

Arrange the strawberry risotto and place the caramelized strawberries in the middle of the risotto. Serve the risotto quickly.

Important: Heat the strawberry puree only briefly in the risotto. This preserves the soft taste of the strawberries. Avoid heavy cooking, otherwise the risotto can turn grey and the taste is not perfect.
