Spring Green Risotto
July 17 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PDT
Start time where you are: 4:00 pm PDT
Get a delightful spring in your step with our Spring Green Risotto. In this lively livestream class, we’ll make a risotto large enough to feed the family as a one-dish wonder. This sassy springtime risotto is bright green from peas and mint, and zingy from the lemon. We love this risotto as it is, but it’s also nice to add shrimp or scallops.
Ingredients for Spring Green Risotto
1½ cups Arborio rice
butter (about half a stick)
soffrito ingredients: 1 medium onion or 4 shallots, 2 stalks celery, 2 garlic cloves
white wine (some for you, some for the Spring Green Risotto)
4 cups chicken stock (vegetarians can use veggie stock or water)
a splash of cream (optional)
a small block Parmesan, Pecorino or Asiago cheese
a selection of spring veggies. We’ll use peas and asparagus. These can be fresh or from frozen. (We’ll talk through all the versions in class.) You’ll need about 1 cup peas (or fava beans, or shelled edamame) and about 1 cup chopped asparagus tips.
a selection of herbs. We’ll use about 5 sprigs each of mint and parsley. Other options include basil and parsley, dill and parsley, or tarragon and chive.
