How to make it
- Prepare your stock while waiting for the vegetables to cook (see following steps). Make sure to use a pot large enough to hold all 6 Cups. Heat it to simmering, and add your wine.
- Using a large (~4 Qt) pan, add 2 Tbs butter, sautee your mushrooms over a medium heat just until tender. Remove and set aside.
- Now use the remaining 2 Tbs butter and the Salt, cook the onions (still at Medium) for about 5 minutes. You only want the onions clear, NOT caramelized (not browned). Add the rice and stir well. Continue cooking for another 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. We want the rice to begin to become clear at the edges without anything browning (rice or onions).
- Reduce heat on the large pot to low.
- Add enough stock/wine to just cover the rice. Stir frequently to prevent the rice on bottom from browning until the liquid is nearly completely absorbed. Repeat this process until all the stock/wine has been added.
- When the last of the stock is added, use the pot to bring 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil. Boil the Asparagus for exactly 2 minutes. This can be done simultaneously while occasionally stirring the rice/stock.
- Add Asparagus & Mushrooms to the rice, stir well.
- Remove from heat and add Parmesan, Nutmeg, & Lemon Juice, stir well and serve.
- Pepper to taste.
