Double Asparagus Risotto
45 mins (prep 10, cooking 35)
15 ingredients
4 servings
I found a great deal on asparagus at the public market, so, in my search for recipes to use 10 pounds of asparagus (!), I've found several variations of asparagus risotto. This one is adapted from a combination of several different ideas. . . an asparagus puree helps capture the subtle flavor, and the tender tips are added in right before serving. If you prepare your ingredients ahead of time (mis en place), this will go together very quickly and easily. Ideal with a fresh crusty bread and a crisp white wine - I recommend an Italian pinot grigio.
