Recipe Stefano Cavada

Our recipe: brown rice with radicchio and stracchino cheese

2 servings
160 gr brown risotto rice
60 gr radicchio
10 gr onion
10 gr olive oil
10 gr oil and butter to taste
10 gr grated Parmesan cheese
20 gr stracchino
vegetable stock as required
red wine as required

Chop the onion and fry it gently in a pan with heated olive oil. Finely shred the radicchio and add it to the pan with the onion. Stir the ingredients for a few moments and then add a splash of red wine. When the radicchio is nicely browned, remove a part of it and blend to obtain a smooth cream. Toast the brown rice in a separate pan for a few minutes, then add the red wine and let it simmer rapidly. When the liquid has evaporated, add a ladle of warm vegetable stock. Continue to cook and gradually add the vegetable stock, a ladle at a time whilst stirring. 10 minutes before the end of the cooking time, add the pan-roasted radicchio and the radicchio cream to the rice. When the rice is ready, stir in the grated cheese and the butter. Garnish the plate with some stracchino cheese and serve.
