Creamy risotto bursting with fresh lemon juice and tossed with freshly steamed asparagus.
In a medium saucepan bring chicken broth to a simmer.
In another medium saucepan with a steam basket, add enough water under steam basket and place asparagus pieces in. Add a pinch of salt and cover to steam until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Carefully remove asparagus and set aside.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in onions and cook until slightly tender, about 3-4 minutes. Add in rice, 2 tablespoons lemon juice and wine and stir until liquid is absorbed into rice. Ladle in about 1/2 cup of chicken broth into rice and stir until liquid is absorbed. Continue adding 1/2 cup of chicken broth at a time, stirring and adding more broth in once absorb until all chicken broth is gone and rice is al dente, about 15-20 minutes.
Turn off heat and stir in remaining tablespoon of butter, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, lemon zest, Romano cheese and steamed asparagus. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Here’s an easy recipe for Mexican Rice (aka Spanish Rice). It’s cooked right in a rice cooker, which happens to be my new favorite kitchen toy. But hey, don’t worry if you don’t have a slow cooker. I’ll share my easy stove top directions too.
