The fried scallions are not traditionally part of this Italian risotto and peas dish, but we love the added crunch. This recipe is ideal to make in the springtime when peas are fresh, but frozen works as well (we wanted you to be able to enjoy it year-round).

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup plus 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 5 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 oz. pancetta, finely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup arborio or carnaroli rice
  • 2 cups shelled fresh peas (from about 2 lb. pods)
  • 3 Tbsp. finely chopped mint
  • 1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 oz. finely grated Parmesan (about 1 cup), plus more, shaved, for serving
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Recipe Preparation

  • Cut scallions crosswise into 3" pieces, then cut each piece lengthwise into thin strips.

  • Heat ¼ cup oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium-high. Add scallions and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisped and golden brown in spots, 4–6 minutes. (They’ll soften at first but will crisp up eventually.) Using a slotted spoon, transfer scallions to paper towels to drain; season with salt. Pour off oil into a small bowl; set aside for later. Reserve saucepan.

  • Bring broth to a simmer in a medium pot; keep warm over medium-low heat.

  • Return saucepan to stove and add pancetta and 2 Tbsp. oil. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until fat begins to cook out, about 3 minutes.

  • Add onion and cook, stirring often (notice a theme here?), until softened and golden, 5–8 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring like you mean it, until softened, about 1 more minute.

  • Stir in rice; season with salt. Cook, stirring, until some grains are translucent, about 4 minutes. Add wine and cook—Never. Stop. Stirring.—until pan is almost dry, about 3 minutes. Ladle in 2 cups broth and simmer, stirring occasionally, until broth is absorbed, 2–3 minutes. Ladle in another 2 cups broth and continue to cook, stirring yet again, until rice is cooked through and most of the broth is absorbed, 5–7 minutes.

  • Add peas and remaining 1 cup broth and cook, stirring to the very end, until peas are tender, 3–5 minutes. (If using frozen peas, add at the end and cook 1 minute to warm through.) Stir in mint, butter, lemon zest, and 2 oz. Parmesan. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

  • Divide risi e bisi among bowls. Top with shaved Parmesan and reserved crunchy scallions. Drizzle with reserved scallion oil; season with pepper.

Reviews SectionGood grief, do NOT listen to the commenters who say to pre-cook the rice! This is made similar to risotto and the rice absorbs the added liquid as it cooks. Get some good carnaroli or arborio rice and make it according to the recipe, keeping in mind that the cooking times for each ingredient may need to be adjusted. Excellent and authentic northern Italian dish!AnonymousIdaho, USA 07/03/20To those saying the rice should be cooked beforehand (and to anyone reading their comments): *Please* don't do that. You absolutely cannot make risotto from pre-cooked rice, and the suggestion is bizarre and baffling. This recipe is beautiful as-written—I'm talking, like, crazy delicious. I make it regularly. I do find, however, that I usually need to cook the rice longer than stated. Cooking times in recipes are always relative and will vary from cook-to-cook and setting-to-setting. Use your instincts.Ashburn, VA, United States05/14/20This was amazing! We accidentally tripled the pancetta amount (use metric measurements!), which made the dish very salty. But this would have been great if we actually followed the recipe.jacobvaughan344709australia05/08/19I'm in the middle of preparing this. There's either too many scallions or not enough oil to fry them. Six scallions produces a ton of material and 1/4 cup just means they soak it all up rather than frying in it as the recipe seems to imagine. No oil was left over for later use. The rice has to be cooked first I presume? 1 cup of cooked rice is what it should say - no way uncooked rice will cook in 11 minutes and become "translucent" and "cooked through".I think there is a step missing - the rice should be cooked before it is added to the onion and garlic mixture!This recipe is fantastic, it is easy to follow and execute relatively quickly. My husband and I both loved this dish, it was inSANEly delicious. For a couple who makes a ton of risotto, would highly recommend for a slight change of gears. It is so well-balanced flavor-wise with sweet, sour, umami, and texture-wise with creamy and crunchy from those wonderful fried scallions.kelseyurgoWinston-Salem, NC05/14/18

Risi e Bisi - Recipes

This risotto really shines when you use sweet fresh peas that have not quite filled their pods—try your local farmers’ market. Alternately, you can substitute frozen petite peas. Good quality extra virgin olive oil is also important because its flavor becomes part of the dish. Pair with a glass of Soave or Prosecco to give your dinner a Venetian touch.

Remove from heat cool to room temperature. Place onions and butter in a food processor blend until smooth. If making ahead, chill until ready to use.

In a medium pan place peas, remaining half onion and 1 C (15 ml) water. Bring to a boil on high reduce and simmer until peas are just tender, 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat transfer to a bowl with slotted spoon, reserving cooking liquid.

To a large skillet, add ¼ cup (200 g) of onion-butter and rice cook 2 minutes on medium, stirring to coat. Add reserved pea-cooking liquid and cook, stirring constantly, until nearly all liquid has been absorbed. Add broth, ¾ cup (175 ml) at a time, stirring between additions until nearly absorbed, until rice is tender but firm to the bite, about 15 minutes. Stir in peas, cheese, parsley and ½ cup (120 g) of broth. Remove from heat season with salt and pepper.

Serving Suggestion

Serve as a side with Fegato alla Veneziana, or top with cooked shrimp for a main course.

Venetian Rice and Peas (Risi e Bisi)

Rice and peas, or risi e bisi, is a classic Venetian dish, traditionally eaten on April 25, St. Mark’s Day. Much like risotto, the rice is rich and creamy because of the starchiness of the grains and how they are cooked. But risi e bisi typically is a bit soupier. Sweet peas stud the dish, and in the version taught to us by Michela Tasca, owner of Ca’ de Memi farm and bed and breakfast in Piombino Dese outside of Venice, the al dente grains were bathed in beautiful pale green broth, a result of peas pureed into the cooking liquid. For our version, we puree peas plus fresh parsley with a small amount of a broth infused with aromatics. To keep the flavors and color vibrant, we hold off on adding the puree, along with additional whole peas, until the rice has finished cooking. Pancetta provides salty, meaty backbone and fennel seeds, with their notes of licorice, complement the grassy, sweetness of the peas. Vialone nano is the preferred variety of Italian medium-grain rice for risi e bisi, but easier to find Arborio works just as well.

The restaurant Rizi and Bizi

Tomaž Bevčič has always been a chef – first in Ankaran and then in other places in Istria, training with great masters such as Evelin Grizon or Marjan Mislej. Ten years ago, he decided to open his own restaurant in Portorož, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Slovenia – along with Piran, Izola and Koper (also because these are the only towns on the coast in Slovenia). For his dishes, Tomaž mainly sources his ingredients from Croatia, and he’s always searching for the best fresh catch of seafood, since most of his dishes try to stay in theme with the coastal feel of his restaurants.

"I like to bring out all the flavor possibilities from any one ingredient – so I can understand how to transform it, but always with respect.” Bevčič’s menu changes about four times a year, but the chef always orients the dishes toward seafood. That’s why his version of rizi e bizi doesn’t call for bacon (like the traditional recipe), but instead contains red shrimp. He uses red shrimp from Kvarner, Croatia – a place known for having the most valuable shrimp in the Mediterranean. So much so that he adds them raw so you can taste their full flavor.


Three ways to make Risi e Bisi: The original recipes from Venice

Risi e Bisi (garden pea risotto) is a favorite spring dish in Venice: By mid-April, the Rialto Market looks like this, and everyone who loves fresh peas will feel like heaven: You’ll see peas of all sizes, from the estuary, the northern Lagoon, and even from southern Italy (Campania, south of Salerno). So it’s really hard to choose your favorites amongst all this bounty:

Perhaps you know that risi e bisi was first cooked in Venice, centuries ago. I’ve seen something called “risi e bisi” as side dish on many menus across Europe, usually referring to cooked rice and frozen garden peas. Now, this hasn’t go anything do with the original recipe, which is a real gourmet dish, as you’ll see in a minute. And obviously, the long time it takes to prepare the dish, and the fresh garden peas from the market make a lot of difference.

The original recipe is a very creamy risotto (to be stirred continuously, which does take a bit of time). So it’s not an easy dish, in fact, it takes a couple of years to learn to prepare a perfect risotto like a Venetian chef does. If you’d like to try this recipe, make sure you have at least 90 minutes available.

If you take a close look, you’ll notice that there are three kinds of risotto available in Venice. Two of them are based on recipes passed on by one generation to the next, but the third one was forgotten when the Republic of Venice ceased to exist in 1797, so it’s a dish you usually won’t find on the menu. Well, I hope that will change in the years to come, as many Venetian chefs go through the ancient recipe collections!

First, there’s the popular variant of risi e bisi: Risotto rice and fresh garden peas, that is, NOT frozen. Preferably, the peas come from Badoere, a village located near Treviso on the mainland. This dish also uses speck or guanciale, plus Taleggio and Parmesan cheese, lots of fresh parsley and black pepper. This is the most common version, which you can eat on or just after 25 April in some, but not all restaurants in Venice.

The second version of risi e bisi uses not only the peas but also the baccelli (pods), which are cooked in water. Their soft green lining is then scraped off and added to the peas, which are cooked with rice and lard.

Today, I’m sharing the forgotten historical recipe below, the really festive variant, and in Venet, we write it like this: Risóto de l’Doge (in Italian: Risotto del Doge). For this special and forgotten dish, you’ll need two types of garden peas, speck or guanciale, soft cheese like Taleggio, and more solid cheese, like Montasio. You’ll also prepare some ingredients separately, as you can see in the recipe below.


Recipe Summary

  • 1 (32-ounce) container fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons regular olive oil or lemon-infused olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 1 cup frozen petite green peas
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Bring broth to a boil in a large saucepan reduce heat to a very low simmer.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic sauté 3 minutes. Add rice cook 2 minutes. Add about two-thirds of hot broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add remaining broth simmer an additional 5 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in peas, cheese, salt, and pepper.

Risi e Bisi (REE-see eh BEE-see), or "rice and peas" is a classic Venetian dish served in spring when baby green peas have just been harvested.


INTERESTING FACTS

Do you know your rice? Traditionalists will likely argue that the rice used for risi e bisi must be the Vialone Nano variety, not Carnaroli or Arborio (the latter two being typically for risotto). Vialone Nano is starchier and absorbs more seasoning from the broth, giving risi e bisi a creamier texture. In Italy there are many varieties of rice and all have their own place in the local cuisine. It is a popular ingredient in the Northern Italy (think ‘Milanese risotto’ for example) where some of the best rice is cultivated – most of Italy’s rice fields are actually located in the regions of Piedmont and Lombardy.
