Ingredients list



  • Wash the asparagus and cut off the woody part of the stalk. Then cut into pieces of about the same length of 1cm/½in.
  • Peel and finely chop the onion. Heat some olive oil in a large cooking pot and sauté the onion in it over a gentle heat for about 5 minutes until translucent.
  • Add the rice and stir-fry for 1 minute. Deglaze with a ladle of vegetable broth and reduce heat. Simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Now add the asparagus and mix everything thoroughly.
  • Then keep adding a little broth and stir constantly. Once the broth is almost completely absorbed, repeat the process. This should take about 20 minutes in total. The rice should be tender but still somewhat firm to the bite.
  • Remove the pot from the heat.  Stir in the grated Parmesan, the butter and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Arrange the risotto in bowls or deep plates and serve hot.
    Buon appetito!
