Have you tried making it in the oven instead of in a pan?

That\s a great idea, avocado risotto. Sounds great, I bet the texture is off the hook!

Looks yummy! Can we get a recipe? :)

And the strawberry salad looks fit for a yumatarian!

1 cup arborio rice
2 TB oil
2 avocados
1 onion
5 gloves garlic
salt and pepper
stock or water

mash avocados in a bowl
dice onion and garlic, then saute in pan with oil (med hi heat)
add rice and stir around for a minute or two
add stock or water 1/2 cup at a time while stirring the rice, when the liquid runs low in the pan add more, repeat
occasionally taste the rice for firmness...also keep stirring every 20 seconds or so
when rice was at an al dente texture I added the mashed avocado and lowered the heat to medium
keep cooking and adding liquid if needed until risotto is done, salt and pepper to taste
wallah

Id probably only use 1.5 or 1 avocados next time and maybe add mushrooms as this came out super rich

What a fascinating combination! I've never thought of doing an avocado risotto before, although I have had an avo pasta sauce at a restaurant... And that strawberry salad looks so colourful & gorgeous.

OMG avo and risotto! Such a good idea!

What kind of mushroom do you think you'd add? I'm thinking maybe peppered and baked tofu cubes... Maybe some red onion?

Also, I bet this would be super delicious cold, which is nice in the summer... Hmmm...

You're cooking the avocado? I heard it turns bitter then... Maybe I should give it a try!
How many did this serve?
