Ingredients
For the broth
  • 100 g of Qualità Oro coffee beans
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 3 litres water
For the puree
  • 300 g frozen peas
  • 1 shallot
  • 5 cl liquid cream salt, pepper and olive oil
For the coffee butter
  • 30 g of Qualità Oro ground coffee
  • 250 g lightly salted butter
  • 320 g Arborio rice
  • 1 handful of basil or parsley
Method
THE PHASES

Start by preparing the cold broth: peel and dice the onion, the carrot and the celery, crush the Qualità Oro coffee beans and place them in a saucepan with the water. Bring to the boil and lower the heat. Leave to cook for about 1 hour. Cook the frozen peas for 4 minutes in a boiling pot of salted water. Drain them and set them aside, keeping 60 g for decoration. Sauté the chopped shallot in a frying pan with olive oil for 2 minutes, then add it to the peas and blend with the cream, adding a ladle of cooking water if the mixture is too dense. Add the ground Qualità Oro coffee to the butter (remove it from the fridge 3 hours prior, to obtain the a butter cream texture) and stir by hand until smooth and even. Cool and refrigerate. In a stockpot, toast the rice without water or fat, and stir continuously. When the rice becomes translucent, lower the heat and cook, adding the broth one ladle at a time, allowing it to be absorbed by the rice. Repeat this procedure for approximately 18 minutes. The rice must be cooked through and fluffy, having absorbed the broth. When it’s ready, add 4 tablespoons of coffee butter and a drizzle of olive oil. For a creamier texture, you can add mascarpone.
