stephmodo: Spring Risotto

Spring Risotto

• 23 April 2009

This is a delicious recipe to make and nicely incorporates those yummy Spring vegetables prevalent at the market (asparagus, leeks, peas). If you're not a lemon fan consider going easy on the lemon zest; if you're a big fan of lemon, stick to the recipe. Don't allow yourself to be intimidated by risotto--it's really just chopping and stirring. Risotto doesn't require a lot of skill necessarily, just attention! My kids love to sit on the counter and stir for me, which works out nicely for both of us :)

One other note...risotto is incredibly filling and I think you'll find a little goes a long way. Traditionally, risotto is more of a side dish, or at least a smaller course; however, we enjoy it as a main course (this is a good one to add to your list of vegetarian meals) with salad and crusty bread.

Happy Spring!


  1. My daughter's favorite meal is butternut squash risotto so I'd love to add a spring risotto to the mix. Thanks for link.

  2. PERFECT! I was just going to look for something to make with asparagus since it's on sale. This looks delicious!

  3. I love risotto as a main dish. It was my first meal in Italy. I'd love to try this one.

  4. I haven't made a risotto dish yet but this one is tempting! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I am totally a risotto girl, I'm all about finding and trying out new recipes, this one looks fresh, healthy, and perfect for a sunny Spring day, thanks I'll try it out!


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
