The Traditional Recipes

Rice and Peas

This is a very old Venetian recipe. The tiny sweet green peas from the islands in the lagoon make this taste more like a dessert than a rice dish. Risi e Bisi should end up much more all'onda (wavy" or more liquid) than regular risotto - almost like a soup - so be prepared to use at least a cup more stock. Although it is best when made with sweet fresh peas, you can use frozen petite peas to make Risi e Bisi



  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (45g)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 celery rib, finely chopped
  • 2 cups shelled fresh peas (about 2 pounds 900g unshelled)
  • 2 cups chicken stock (500 ml)
  • bouquet garni: 1 fresh thyme sprig, 1 bay leaf and 2 flat-leaf parsley sprigs tied in cheesecloth
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Heat the butter in a 2-quart (2 liter) saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook, stirring constantly, until the onion is softened but not brown-3 or 4 minutes. Add the fresh peas, 2 cups (500 ml) stock, and bouquet garni and cook gently, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Prepare the risotto as directed in the basic recipe, stirring the cooked fresh peas and their juice or the thawed frozen peas into the rice when you begin cooking. Add enough extra stock at the end to make the risotto almost, but not quite, as liquid as a soup.
