200g mushrooms

1/2 cup risotto rice

2 cups vegetable broth

2, finely chopped shallots

2 cloves, minced garlic

1/4 cup white wine

2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp olive oil

to taste salt

to taste black pepper


Trim the woody ends of the asparagus spears. Toss the asparagus with olive oil, salt, and black pepper. Grill on a hot grill or grill pan for 3-4 minutes per side until tender and slightly charred. Set aside.

In a saucepan, heat the vegetable broth and keep it warm. In a separate large pan, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil and 1 tbsp of butter. Add the shallots and garlic, sauté until translucent. Add the risotto rice and cook for 1-2 minutes until lightly toasted. Pour in the white wine and stir until absorbed.

Begin adding the warm vegetable broth to the risotto, one ladle at a time. Stir continuously and wait for the broth to be absorbed before adding more. Continue this process for about 18-20 minutes until the risotto is creamy and al dente.

Stir in the sliced mushrooms and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until the mushrooms are tender. Remove the risotto from heat and stir in the grated Parmesan cheese and remaining butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
