Like many of our recipes, this one can be adapted to whatever veggies you have on hand! Leeks, mushrooms, onions, garlic and shallots can all be sautéed up before adding in the rice. And more delicate veggies such as peas, asparagus tips, and herbs can be quickly blanched (dropped in boiling water for 1min, then removed) and stirred in at the end. This is an endlessly versatile dish, just keep the liquid-rice ratio, and you’re good to go!

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 medium leeks, thinly sliced and rinsed well (dirt hides between the layers!)

  • 1 cup diced shallots, or 1 large onion and 2-3 cloves of garlic

  • 1 cup fresh peas (if using snow peas, snip off the ends and roughly chop)

  • 1 cup asparagus tips (optional)

  • 4 cups of stock (vegetable, chicken, or lamb stock all work well)

  • 3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 cup Arborio or Caranoli rice

  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  • 4 Tbsp lemon juice

  • Salt & pepper to taste

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups pea shoots, rinsed and patted dry

  • 2 cups asparagus, rinsed and trimmed

  • Lettuce, rinsed and patted dry

  • Shredded zest and juice of 1 Meyer lemon

  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

  • Freshly ground pepper & sea salt

Directions:

  1. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Drop in the chopped asparagus and cook for 3 minutes, until tender when pierced with a fork. Immediately remove from the pot and put into a bowl of ice water to halt cooking. Drain asparagus and chop into bite sized pieces.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the zest and juice of 1 lemon with olive oil, salt, and pepper. You may want to add a 1/4tsp of sugar if using a regular lemon (Meyer lemons are sweeter)

  3. In a large bowl, combine pea shoots, asparagus, and lettuce. Toss with dressing to coat and enjoy!
