Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Ingredients (for 2 people) :

    -600ml vegetable stock
    -25g butter
    -4 spring onions, chopped finely
    -2 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
    -½ green chilli, de-seeded and chopped finely
    -150g Arborio rice
    -½ glass of white wine
    -half a bundle (approx. 125g) British asparagus
    -100g British peas
    -2 tbsp (10g) grated vegetarian parmesan style cheese
    -3 tbsp (85g) crème fraiche
    -juice and zest of 1 small lemon
    -handful of chives, chopped finely


Place the stock on a slow heat and keep it there whilst you are making your risotto.

In a separate large pan melt your butter and then add the spring onions, garlic and chilli and sweat until soft for 5 minutes.

Then add the Arborio rice and mix round well so it absorbs all the flavours, before adding the white wine.

When the white wine has been absorbed, add the British asparagus spears and start adding ladleful by ladleful of stock, adding the next one when the previous one has been absorbed.

After 15 minutes of continual stirring and adding the stock, taste and adjust the seasoning and then add the peas.

After a further 5 minutes turn the heat off, add the parmesan and crème fraiche, lemon zest and juice and let them melt in before dishing up.

Garnish with some chopped chives.
