    Asparagus  are my favorite –Great Spring recipe !

     

Spring Risotto with Asparagus
Ingredients 

  • 1/3 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter(or substitute non-butter spread)
  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 1/3 cups Arborio rice
  • 2 (14 ounce) cans reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 10 - 12 asparagus, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, finely shredded(skip this if you do not do dairy)
  • 1 1/2 ounces prosciutto or ham, thinly sliced

Note: I also like to add cooked shrimp!


 Preparation 

In a large saucepan cook onions in butter(non butterspread) and olive oil over medium heat until tender. Add uncooked rice. Cook and stir about 1 minute. In another saucepan bring broth to boiling; reduce heat and simmer, covered.
Slowly add 1 cup of hot broth to the rice mixture, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until liquid is absorbed. Continue adding broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly until the broth has been absorbed. Repeat with the wine.
The rice should be creamy and barely firm; it should take 30 minutes to get to this point. Stir in the 1/3 cup cheese(skip this step if no dairy) and remove from heat. Stir in prosciutto and serve.

Happy Spring!!!
