Risotto with Shrimp, Asparagus and Cheddar Recipe


Risotto is a new favourite of mine.  This recipe is pretty simple but still tasty.


What You Will Need:

–   1 Tbsp of butter

–   1 chopped onion

–   2 chopped cloves of garlic

–   1 1/4 cups of arborio rice

–   3 ½ cups of chicken broth

–   1/2 tsp of thyme

–   1 bay leaf

–   12 of large shelled shrimp

–   1 bunch of asparagus cut into 1˝ pieces

–   1 ½ cups grated cheddar


What You Will Need to do:

1.   In a skillet, melt the butter.  Cook the onion and garlic for a couple of minutes.

2.   Next, add the rice and stir thoroughly to coat the grains with butter.  Add the chicken broth, thyme and bay leaf.  Let simmer for about 15 minutes.

3.   Now, add shrimp and asparagus.  Cook for 5 minutes with cover on.

4.   Then take the lid over and let cook for another 5 minutes or until all of the liquid has absorbed.

5.   Discard the bay leaf and stir in the Cheddar.

There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
