Recipe Name: Asparagus Risotto With Lettuce Submitted by: Administrator
Source: Source Description:

Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

2 Tablespoon(s) Unsalted butter plus 2
tablespoons butter extra
1 Tablespoon(s) Oil
1 Onion, finely
1 Garlic clove, finely minced
1 1/2 Cup(s) Arborio rice
1/2 Cup(s) White wine
5 Cup(s) Vegetable or light chicken
1 Head Butter or Mignonette
lettuce approximately 3
cups shredded
300 Gram(s) Fresh asparagus, green
white or
purple sliced into
2cm. lengths and
tips removed and
2 Tablespoon(s) Light cream
1 Tablespoon(s) Chopped fresh parsley
1/2 Cup(s) Grated parmesan cheese
Remove any tough portions from each leaf of lettuce. Wash and dry the
leaves thoroughly, and shred them with a knife. Heat 2 tablespoons
butter in a small skillet over low heat. Add the reserved asparagus
tips and saute for 1 minute until bright green, remove from the pan
and set aside. Add the lettuce and cook while stirring for about 1
minute, until the leaves are wilted. Turn off the heat and set aside.
Heat the butter and oil in Tamaras Risotto Pot* over a moderate heat.
Add the onion and garlic and saute for 1 to 2 minutes, until the onion
begins to soften, being careful not to brown it. Add the rice to the
onion mixture and stir for 1 minute, making sure all the grains are
well coated. Add the wine and stir until it is completely absorbed.
Begin to add the simmering stock, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring
frequently. Wait until each addition is almost completely absorbed
before adding the next 1/2 cup, reserving about 1/4 cup to add at the
end. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. When 1/2 the stock has been
absorbed, add the lengths of asparagus and continue to cook the
risotto using the remaining stock. When the rice is tender but still
firm, add the reserved stock and the lettuce mixture, cream, pars-ley,
and Parmesan and stir vigorously to combine with the rice. Sprinkle
the reserved asparagus tips over the top and serve immediately.
