How to Make Asparagus Risotto

Step-by-Step

  1. Blanch asparagus pieces in large pot of boiling, salted water 2 minutes. Drain. Rinse asparagus under cold water. Drain asparagus well.
  2. Bring chicken broth to simmer in small saucepan. Reduce heat to low and keep broth hot.
  3. Heat olive oil in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add chopped onion and saute until translucent, about 4 minutes.
