1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
1/2 cup dry white wine
about 3 carrots, grated
3 cups vegetable stock

2 tablespoons minded fresh parsley
2 tablespoons minced fresh tarragon
1 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Lemon juice to taste (about 1 medium lemon)

Melt the 3 tablespoons of butter over medium in a large skillet and sauté the shallots until they’re soft and translucent. Add the rice and cook for about 3 minutes, until the rice also turns translucent. Add the wine and stir until it is absorbed into the rice. Add the grated carrots, and then start adding the stock,1/2 cup at a time. Stir the rice well between each addition, as the rice should soak up the stock before you add more. It will take more time as you add more stock and the rice becomes more saturated. Continue to add stock until it is basically all used up and the risotto is creamy. The rice shouldn’t be mushy however, so stop while it still has a bit of bite to it.

Add the herbs and cheese and stir to incorporate it. Season with salt and pepper, and a little lemon juice in order to cut some of the sweetness of the carrots. On top and an extra sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and freshly cut parsley .

225g of fresh green asparagus
4 tablespoons olive olive oil

1.6 liters of vegetable broth

55g butter
2 tablespoons chopped basil

Add the asparagus, the courgette, peppers to squares and fry, stirring constantly, for 3-4 minutes, until the vegetables are with a green color and highlights and starting to get soft. Reserve.

Heat remaining olive oil in another large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until the onion is transparent. Reduce heat and add the Arborio rice and stir to mix the ingredients. Cook the rice for 2-3 minutes until the grains are clear .Add  vegetable broth, one cup for once all the wine. Stir constantly and add more stock when the rice absorb the liquid. Increase the heat to medium so that the liquid cook. Cook for 20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed by the rice and is soft.
Add vegetables and basil rice. Add the rest of broth there are left over and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. 
Add the butter, Serve immediately.

The secret of any risotto is to add the liquid slowly and often moving, so the rice absorbs the liquid and release the starch, leaving the creamy and fluffy risotto. Another tip is to not let the risotto get too dry. The final tip is that the rice should be separately prepared and other ingredients, if any, should be added to the rice only at the end of the preparation.
