With fresh asparagus popping up everywhere in grocery stores, a healthy asparagus risotto recipe like this is a resourceful way to use this favorite spring veggie.
Asparagus only comes around during the spring season, making this a dinner recipe you can only enjoy for a few short months. This asparagus risotto recipe is so delicious, however, that you’ll be remembering and longing for this dish long after asparagus season is over.
When you’re shopping for asparagus, look for firm spears with slightly tender tips. The asparagus stalks should also be mostly green throughout; avoid asparagus stalks that are predominantly faded in color or white, as those parts will need to be removed.
Comforting, fresh, and absolutely tantalizing, we can’t think of one thing we don’t love about this asparagus risotto!
