Bonjour madame Gaudreault,

Désolé du délai de réponse pour votre commentaire. Nous avons modifié la recette pour qu'elle soit plus facile à saisir. Effectivement, ce n'est que le fromage bleu, les pistaches, les échalotes et le vin blanc qui doivent être réduits en purée par le robot culinaire.

Si vous voulez réessayer, je suis certain que ce sera succulent!

Je voudrais faire cette recette mais ce n'est vraiment pas clair. Il est écrit de réunir tous les ingredients sauf l'huile d'olive dans un robot, puis de faire réduire le balsamique (un ingrédient qu'il ne fallait pas mettre au robot?), puis de faire suer les oignons ( un autre ingrédient qu'il ne fallait pas mettre au robot?, puis d'ajouter les autres ingredients. Lesquels?
