Method

  • Melt the butter in a wide high sided pan over a very low heat.
  • Peel and chop the onion finely.
  • Put onion in saucepan and let it soften stirring from time to time until it becomes translucent.
  • Stir in the rice, folding  the grains over briefly in the butter with a wooden spoon.
  • Pour in the wine and let it bubble down until the liquid has pretty much disappeared.
  • Add a large ladleful of hot stock, turn the heat up a bit, then let the liquid almost disappear before adding the pieces of asparagus and a second ladle of stock
  • Continue adding the stock as it boils down to almost nothing. Stir the rice often.
  • Season with salt and pepper, the lemon zest and juice and continue cooking until the rice is creamy but has a little bite left to it.
  • Stir in the hard cheese and eat immediately.
