Spring Asparagus Risotto

Rich, creamy risotto is the perfect spotlight for fresh seasonal vegetables, and good chicken (or vegetable) broth is the key to a flavorful risotto. In the summer, try this dish with haricots verts or other snap beans: Skip the puree step and blanch the beans in boiling water for a minute or two before adding. In colder months, use butternut squash: Skip the pureeing as well, and sauté cubed squash in a little butter or olive oil until tender before adding.
