INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoon (30 mililiter) butter, divided
  • 1 shallot, finely minced
  • 1 cup (250 mililiter) Arborio rice
  • 3 tablespoon (45 mililiter) Salad Herbs
  • 4 1/2 cups (1.13 liter) No Salt Added Chicken Cooking Stock, hot
  • 10 asparagus spears, woody part trimmed and cut into 1 ½-inch (4 cm) pieces
  • 3 tablespoon (45 mililiter) mascarpone cheese
  • 1/3 cup (75 mililiter) parmesan cheese
  • Sea Salt Grinder , to taste
  • Black Peppercorn Grinder , to taste

Preparation

  • 1 In a large skillet, melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter over medium-high heat. Add shallots and sauté 1 minute or until translucent. Add rice and toast until it has a nutty aroma, but is not browned.
  • 2 Add seasoning; stir well. Add hot stock, 1/4 to ½ cup (60-125 mL) at a time, stirring constantly until all liquid has been absorbed. Repeat until all the stock is used, and the rice is almost completely cooked, using more chicken stock/water if needed. This should take about 20 minutes.
  • 3 Add asparagus and remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) of butter; cook 5 minutes until asparagus is tender. Add mascarpone cheese and parmesan; stir until combined and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
