Take-out Tuesday, Asparagus Mushroom Risotto, No fuss!

Risotto has a reputation of being difficult to do well…that it is hard to make at home…

Make sure you use an absorbent  rice, such as Arborio.

Spinach is optional in his recipe, and you can use vegetable or chicken broth

Chop the onion and asparagus.  If you buy the mushrooms already sliced, it’s a real time saver

Saute onion in butter and olive oil until transparent.  Add Arborio and cook 3 minutes

Add 1 cup of broth

Toss in the raw mushrooms and asparagus. Season with pepper.  Cook over medium low heat stirring occasionally

Once broth has been absorbed, add another cup of broth and continue cooking low and slow.  Add spinach if desired. Repeat process, adding broth 1 cup at a time until absorbed and all broth is added

I love this dish because the rice and vegetables cook at the same time.  You can make this while you’re doing other things, just give it an occasional stir~

I hope you enjoy this easy, no fuss risotto!

Especially easy if you can get someone else to make it for you  🙂

    Mmm, delicious! I wanna say that no rice cooker can do it, really. I do it in my Redmond 4500 multicooker and you know – it is fantastic! That is not just my opinion, my friend ask me to do your recipe! Thank you!
