  • Summary

    [Photographs: J. Kenji López-Alt] Turning a classic mushroom risotto into a mushroom and asparagus risotto is as easy as it sounds: just add asparagus. The only key is to add that asparagus right at the end for the best flavor and texture.

    Ingredients

    • 1 quart homemade or store-bought low-sodium chicken stock (1 liter)
    • 1 ounce (30g) dried porcini or morel mushrooms (optional)
    • 1 1/2 cups (about 300g) risotto rice, such as arborio or vialone nano
    • 1 1/2 pounds (700g) mixed mushrooms, such as shiitake, cremini, oyster, and chanterelle, trimmed and thinly sliced
    • 4 tablespoons (60ml) extra-virgin olive oil
    • 4 tablespoons (50g) unsalted butter
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped (about 6 ounces; 170g)
    • 2 medium cloves garlic, finely minced
    • 2 teaspoons (10ml) soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon (15ml) light miso paste
    • 3/4 cup (175ml) dry white wine
    • 1 pound trimmed asparagus, cut into 1-inch pieces (450g)
    • 1/4 cup (60ml) heavy cream (optional; see note)
    • 1 ounce (30g) finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for serving
