This Lemon Asparagus Risotto is so creamy, velvety, and full of robust flavor! This is such a great Springtime dish and super easy to make!
Make sure your vegetable broth stays hot. It’s important to add a little vegetable broth at a time so the rice is cooked slowly and the broth gets absorbed. This method releases the rice’s starches, producing a velvety, creamy dish.
It’s very important to keep stirring the Risotto as it’s cooking, especially as the broth gets absorbed, this prevents scorching.
If you run out of vegetable broth you can substitute hot water.
If serving as a main dish it serves 2, as a side dish it can serve 4.
