Asparagus risotto recipe:
The success of risotto lies in the cooking of the rice. It should be made over low heat and mixed with a wooden spoon until ready to serve.
It may take up to 20 minutes for the rice to cook completely.
- Start by browning the chopped onion in the butter
- Add the rice and mix until translucent
- Add white wine
- Little by little, pour in the broth while waiting for it to be completely absorbed each time (do not add all at once)
- Season with salt and pepper
- Add the grated Parmesan
- When ready to serve, cut the asparagus tips and brown them for a few seconds in the pan to warm them up
- Arrange everything on a plate
If you choose to use fresh asparagus:
- Rinse the asparagus in cold water
- Peel the asparagus so as to remove the stringy part
- Keep only the tips (about 4 cm)
- Cook for about 15 minutes, until the asparagus is tender
