Asparagus risotto


What else can one do? I have a kid who is obsessed with asparagus and Brussels sprouts.

I reworked a Giorgio Locatelli recipe, which I'm sure is somewhere on the net, leaving out the asparagus cream, as I only had the tips and no full spears to render in my trusty Magimix. I did however create a compound of vegetable and asparagus stock for the rice.

Trust me, it went down a treat!

And note that we are so asparagus-obsessed that we have asparagus placemats (I plead completely not guilty on this one).

You may recall I am a huge aficionado of (English) asparagus!

The boy has a funny liking for brussel sprouts too. I'm not sure where he's got it from cos neither me nor the husband can stand the things.

Do you deliver?

@Milo, yes I did, actually. Thought of you when I made it!
@Vic: it depends on how you make 'em. Add bacon and steam them.
@Vikki: I don't mind coming to Minnesota if you pay the ticket ;-) (but not with that crazy airline that geekydyke took to Port-au-Prince; there are limits).
