Making Asparagus Puree
- In a medium skillet, blanch the whole asparagus in boiling salted water for 2 minutes or until al dente. Reserve a half cup of the blanching liquid.
- Remove the asparagus spears with a slotted spoon and shock in ice water.
- Cut 2 inches from the tops and set aside. Thinly slice the bottoms and put them in the blender on low. Blend on high until smooth season with salt and pepper (Check out Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender Review – More Than Just a Blender).
- Add just enough of the blanching water to loosen and start pureeing.
- In a small saucepan, heat the stock and maintain it at a slow simmer.
- Heat the olive oil in a heavy large saucepan over moderate heat. Add onion and sauté until tender and translucent, about 4–5 minutes. Add the rice and stir for 1 minute. Add wine and cook until absorbed and stir for 1–2 minutes. (Need to try Best Mexican Shrimp Tostadas Ceviche)
- Add ½ cup of stock and simmer until the liquid is absorbed, occasionally stirring for 2–3 minutes. Stir in the Parmesan cheese. Continue in this manner, adding the hot stock half a cup until all of the stock has been added and absorbed, the rice is just tender, and the mixture is creamy; the total cooking time is 25 minutes.
- Add the asparagus puree, reserved asparagus tips, lemon juice, and mascarpone, stirring gently to combine and heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper, garnish with lemon zest and serve with more Parmesan.
