Asparagus Risotto

Asparagus season is here! There are so many ways how to prepare asparagus and you can see two of them in this post! The first one is a creamy risotto and the second one are crispy asparagus fries. You can use white asparagus, if you don't have the green one or you don't like it. But if you like them both, mix them!

And there is a little tip: If the asparagus is a little bit older, you can peel it. Then it'll taste amazing again and it won't stuck in your teeth...


Serves: 4

Time: 40 minutes


1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon plain flour

1 cup / 50g panko bread crumbs

1/4 cup / 25g grated parmesan cheese

500g asparagus

1 shallot

1 tablespoon chopped oregano

2 cups / 350g rice

1 cup / 250ml cup dry white wine

4 and 1/2 cups broth (chicken/vegetable)

1/2 cup / 50g grated parmesan cheese

3 tablespoons cold butter

1/2 teaspoons pepper

2 teaspoons salt


step 1

Preheat the oven to 190°C / 375°F.

step 2

Beat the eggs and mix them with salt and plain flour in a bowl. In another bowl mix bread crumbs with parmesan cheese. Then cut the asparagus into 3 parts as you can see in the picture below. Dip the top parts of asparagus in egg mixture and then in panko, coating well. In the end move your asparagus fries into a sheet with baking paper and bake for 25 minutes until brown and crispy.

step 3

Cut the shallot into small pieces and start frying in a pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil. After a minute add the middle parts of asparagus sliced into rings, chopped oregano and fry for another minute. Then add the rice and fry 2 more minutes. (Add some oil if you need.) Now pour it with wine, stir and let it cook for a minute. Once the wine has cooked into the rice rice, add a cup of broth and keep stiring until the rise absorbed all of it. Then add another cup and keep stiring until the rise is cooked well, about 20 minutes.

step 4

In the end add your parmesan cheese. When it’s melted, turn the heat down, add the butter, pepper, salt, then stir and serve with fresh oregano, parmesan, olive oil and your asparagus fries!
