Risotto with Spring Vegetables

This simple risotto showcases the flavor of fresh peas and slender asparagus, two harbingers of spring. The rice can act as a backdrop to nearly any vegetable, from sauteed artichoke hearts to roasted winter squash to earthy wild mushrooms. Cook the vegetable partway before stirring it into the nearly finished risotto to complete the cooking.

Excellent Tasty Dish
February 15, 2013
Loved the outcome.
Dish required a little more babysitting than I normally like, but it was well worth it. Not too heavy or thick the way some rissotto comes out. Lots of flavor, but you might want more salt if you want to serve as a stand-alone dish.
I served mine as a bed under a nice rib-eye. :)
I think I will definitely use more Leeks next time, and quite possibly more Asparagus. Gotta love the vegetables in this.
Pros: Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: babysitting

Quick n Easy Comfort Food
May 14, 2011
This recipe was easy to prepare and the results were delicious! I prepped all of the ingredients ahead of time (mise en place) and stayed close by while the rice cooked to make sure there was enough broth in the pan throughout the recommended cooking time. Although I was only cooking for two, I went ahead and followed the exact quantities to make sure I had enough left over for lunch. Mmm! I'm glad I did as I was able to enjoy a scrumptious lunch the next day at work.
Pros: Yield, Quick, Easy, Healthy, Appearance, Adaptable, Will Make Again, family favorite
