Asparagus Risotto


I love food….I love cooking….I love eating….but I guess you already know that since I do write a FOOD blog.

Food and cooking always played a big role in my life I exercise so I can eat .
I grew up around cooking and I started dabbling in the art of cooking since I was 12 years old.

These days I don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen and most of my dishes are kids friendly and on a budget, but I still enjoy cooking and sharing my dishes with you.

When I share my recipes and my memories with you I don’t expect much and I always enjoy and welcome every comment so when last week TWO of my recipes, yes you read correctly TWO as in one plus one recipes were featured on blogs I love
I was totally floored and speechless.

Lovely and talented Jenn from Rook No.17 (who’s also sharing wonderful Coffee Cake recipe on Daily Organized Chaos this week) featured my Cherry Rice Pudding on her Culinary World Tour post.

Lovely Melynda from Mom’s Sunday Cafe featured my Savory French Toast .

So much love….big thank you both you.




Today I would love to share with you another COMFORT dish that I’ve been craving lately.

It is creamy and oh so sinful Asparagus Risotto…..


Last week I scored some beautiful fresh ASPARAGUS on sale and I’ve been craving risotto for days so I combined the best of both worlds.



Asparagus Risotto




This recipe serves 4-5 as a main dish.



  • 4 cups Vegetable Stock
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Shallot (finely chopped)
  • 2-3 Cloves Garlic (crushed or finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup White Wine
  • 1 cup Arborio Rice
  • 2 Tbsp Butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  • 2 cup Asparagus Pieces (Asparagus cut up to 1″ pieces)
  • Sea Salt
  • Pepper

STEP 1:  In a pot heat vegetable stock and water over medium low heat until warm. Turn heat down to low.

STEP 2: In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and garlic. Saute until translucent about 3 to 4 minutes.

STEP 3: Stir in the rice. Cook  for  2-3  minutes while stirring frequently. Add wine and cook until evaporated. Reduce the heat to medium.

STEP 4: Add warm stock  few ladles at a time (just enough to cover the rice). Stir for a minute with each addition  to develop the starch and the creamy aspect.

STEP 5: Keep adding warm stock every time the pan starts getting dry edges.

STEP 6: Meanwhile cook asparagus until half done. Drain the hot water and put asparagus into ice-cold bath for few minutes. Strain and put aside and sprinkle with sea salt.

STEP 7: When you out of liquid and rice is done stir in butter and Parmesan cheese. Gently stir in asparagus and serve.
