Asparagus Risotto with Minty Peas and Prosciutto

Asparagus Risotto with Minty Peas & Prosciutto

Serves 4-6

3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (EVO)    
30g  Lewis Road Creamery butter  
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 cups Ferron vialone nano rice  
4 cups Sabato chicken stock , heated
4-6 slices prosciutto  
2 bunches of asparagus
1 cup of frozen peas
Juice of 1 lemon
Handful of mint leaves, torn
1 cup Parmigiano Reggiano , grated
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


In a heavy-based saucepan heat the EVO and half the butter and sauté the onion and garlic until soft. Add the rice and stir continuously for about 3 minutes. If using wine, add, then let evaporate. Add the stock, stir gently and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15 minutes.

While the risotto cooks, place prosciutto on a flat oven tray and crisp in a hot 200°C oven for 2 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.

Bring a medium sized pot of water to the boil and cook the asparagus on a low simmer for 2 minutes, until tender. Refresh under cold water and drain. Cut off asapargus tips, reserve the stalks and set aside. Cook peas for 2 minutes in boiling water and drain. In a blender purée peas and asparagus stalks together with a squeeze of lemon juice until smooth.

When the rice is al dente, take off the heat and rest for a few minutes. Stir the pea purée into the risotto until well combined, add the remaining butter, mint and half the grated Parmigiano. Season to taste. To serve, top with asparagus tips, prosciutto, sprinkle over the remaining Parmigiano and finish with a squeeze of lemon.
