Risotto with extra virgin olive oil and Parmigiano Reggiano with bresaola and asparagus. Can risotto be light? Probably not by its very nature, but it may be lighter’ compared to a traditional risotto. This is a quick and easy to prepare risotto, parmigiano Reggiano PDO, mantecato exclusively with extra virgin olive oil and therefore without butter, seasoned with raw asparagus and crispy beef. The precaution is to put the oil for the coat in the freezer, so it's cold enough to have the same creamy effect as butter.
The Bresaola Igp of Valtellina, dried in the oven at 100 degrees, becomes dark and crunchy and undercooked asparagus, which join the risotto in 5 minutes from the end by cooking, in part I put on thin cut, bring a vegetable, reinforced by grated lemon rind. I used voluntarily for cooking a light vegetable broth, not to change the flavor of the risotto. I prepared it using asparagus waste as well, to avoid wasting anything. But you can also use one ready.
Who said that those on a diet cannot enjoy a nice risotto? And after trying the risotto with extra virgin olive oil and Parmigiano Reggiano with bresaola and asparagus I also suggest to take a look at all my RECIPES WITH ASPARAGUS and my SPRING RECIPES. and, if you love risottos, do not miss the RISOTTO WITH WHITE ASPARAGUS CREAM, STRACCHINO AND WALNUTS and the one with ASPARAGUS AND GINGER.
