Lovely Springtime Asparagus Risotto

1件の評価投票 | 1817回のアクセス

Risotto is one of Italy’s great culinary contributions. In Italy, risotto is often served as a first course or side dish for meat or fish. Unlike many rice dishes, risotto should be served in a warm dish and eaten immediately. It will not reheat and must be made at the last minute. If done right, risotto is so rich, creamy and just plain dreamy. The simmering takes a bit of attention but none of the steps are difficult to do. Don’t be scared…Give this delightful Spring dish a try.

  1. In a saucepan, heat the chicken broth over medium heat. Continue to keep hot but not boiling.
  2. In a large nonstick pan, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil. Add asparagus and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  3. Add 2 teaspoons olive oil to pan and heat. Add shallots, garlic and saute until soft about 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in rice and saute until coated in oil. De-glaze the pan with wine and cook until completely absorbed about 1-2 minutes. Add the heated broth in ½ cup increments. Continue to simmer and stir often until each addition is almost completely absorbed before adding the next. Total cooking time for rice is about 40-45 minutes.
  5. Stir in asparagus, spinach, peas, Parmesan cheese and chives. Season with pepper to taste.
