On those day finally we get sunshine….and like you know ,i really like the Asparagus,
And, this time I choose to make a Risotto with Asparagus(green and white).
Make risotto is still diffucult for a lot people …. (just follow the istruction and will be easy):)
You need to have the right Italian rice ,I use “Risotto Carnaroli” Superfino(in 13 minutes is cooked al dente)
I find the risotto Carnaroli the best to make a “Pregievoli and tasty Risotti”
ingredients for 4 person
400 gr Rice Carnaroli
500 gr green Asparagus
500 gr White Asparagus
Glass white wine
Parmesan cheese grated
Botter to taste
Salt and pepper
1 liter vegetables broth
half white onion
Some Olive Oil(extra virgin)
Start to clean the Green Asparagus you need only to be cutted
(I mean,cut the bottom and you can throw it away or you can make a soep)
cut the middle and just for now keep it on the side.
The green asparagus tops keep it in other side.
With the white Asparagus first you need to take off the skin (I use the vegetable peeler Knife)
after you finish to take oof the skin,
you can cut in 3 different parts
The bottom ( you can throw away or you can make a soep)
the middel you can put together with the green Asparagus)
and the white asparagus tops put them together with the green Asparagus
Now Take the middle Asparagus white and green
and put on vegetables broth and let them cook until they get soft.
Now that are soft you can mixer it on the vegetable broth
..let cook in very soft fire to keep hot.
In a Frying Pan with some olive oil(extra virgin)and
a touch of white onion,let fried very soft
when start to get soft,you can add the tops of the white and green asparagus,
keep fried very soft.
Now you can add the rice add some broth
let dry it with the flame of the fire turn on high,
now you can faded with some white wine ,let evaporate the alcohol.
put all the vegetable broth on it
and let the rice cooking for 12 minutes
After 12 minutes you can switch the fire off,
Now you can creamed(Mantecare) the risotto with some Parmesan cheese and the botter
(tips) ,to let get rest the risotto without anything do
After it you can serve it very hot
