Asparagus and Lemon Risotto | Selo Olive Oil Recipes

Creamy Lemon Asparagus Risotto drizzled with Croatian olive oil, served in a stylish bowl and garnished with fresh asparagus tips and lemon zest, showcasing a vibrant and delicious springtime dish.

Why is risotto such a hot topic, you may ask? Well, unlike other rice dishes that lazily sit in water, risotto is a star that demands the spotlight. Slow-cooked with small liquid additions, it teases out the rice's innermost starches, creating a silky sauce that envelops each grain like a warm embrace.

Texture is key. A proper risotto should be all'onda, or "wave-like" in Italian, meaning it's creamy like porridge, but the grains remain firm and defined. For the ultimate comfort food experience, a good risotto is a must-try.

Our Asparagus and Lemon Risotto is a timeless classic that marries the delicate essence of asparagus with the zingy brightness of lemon. It's a delicious and satisfying meal that's perfect for spring or when you want a light yet hearty dish. Enjoy it as a main course or a side dish; every foodie needs to savor this recipe.
