Chicken & Spring Vegetable Risotto
I tried to be a little more adventurous and cheffy with this recipe by incorporating the woody ends of the asparagus in to the meal as well. This reduces waste, adds extra nutrition and intensifies the asparagus flavour. If you use fresh peas or broad beans instead of frozen, you could do the same with the pods as this would also add extra flavour. If this is a step too far for you then don’t worry, you can skip it and just use standard stock to cook the rice. Its a filling enough risotto to serve vegetarian without the chicken. Swap the cream cheese for goats cheese or parmesan to mix it up a little. You could also leave out the chicken and mix through some smoked salmon instead at the end and this would taste delicious. Try putting your own take on the recipe and be a little creative.
