Pulp of one large eggplant

2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons minced shallot
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 1/2 cups arborio rice (10 ounces)
1/4 cup dry white wine

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Puree the eggplant until creamy.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter and oil. Add the onion, shallot, garlic and rice and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until fragrant, 5 minutes. Add the wine and cook until it is absorbed.
