This is a simple to make risotto that works well with quality fresh ingredients to create a wonderful lunch or dinner for the weeknight through to a special dinner.

  • 1 brown onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely diced
  • 3 cups arborio rice

  1. Shell and devein the prawns, leave the tails on if desired. Cut the asparagus into 3cm lengths.
  2. Combine the wine and stock in a saucepan then heat until almost boiling, then put aside.
  3. Melt butter in a large saucepan and saute the onion and garlic until soft. Add the rice and stir to coat with the butter mixture. Continue to stir while adding 1 cup of the stock until fully absorbed then add another cup. Continue to add the stock one cup at a time until all added and absorbed. This normally takes about 40 minutes.
