Our mate Alex from allplants came into the kitchen yesterday to rustle up their incredible new dish, the Super Spring Risotto.

Honestly, it was absolutely delightful, really fresh, creamy & full of flavour. You definitely should make this one at home for you & your family... or your mates... or if you want lunch for 4 days! The choice is yours!

Ingredients
Method

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 white onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 red onion (finely chopped)
  • 5 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tbsp dairy free butter
  • 1 cup arborio / risotto rice
  • 1 cup white wine
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 20 asparagus stalks (chopped into discs)
  • 2 cups of green beans (chopped)
  • 4 cups garden peas
  • handful mint (finely chopped)
  • handful sage (finely chopped)
  • handful parsley (finely chopped)
  • 20 asparagus spears (lightly roasted)
  • handful roasted hazelnuts
  • Salt to taste (2 tsps should be ok)

Method

  1. 1.

    Warm some olive oil in a pan, add the onions & cook them until they’re translucent.

  2. 2.

    Add the garlic, dairy free butter & fry until you release the aroma of the garlic.

  3. 3.

    Add the rice, & stir it round so it’s all well covered in the juices of the other ingredients.

  4. 4.

    Add the wine, lemon juice & stir it until most of the liquid has been absorbed.

  5. 5.

    Pour in a cup of stock & stir until it’s all been absorbed - repeat this process until all the stock has been used - it will take a long time but trust us, it will be well worth it!

  6. 6.

    Add the asparagus, beans, peas & stir into the risotto rice for around 4 minutes (or until the vegetables have softened to your liking - if the rice is drying out, add a bit of water.

  7. 7.

    Add the herbs, stir them in, add the asparagus spears, hazelnuts, salt & stir them in too.

  8. 8.

    Serve immediately & garnish with roasted hazelnuts. BOSH!
