Lemon Asparagus Risotto

Lower in fat than most risotto recipes but no one will know! I like to serve this as a main dish under some steamed halibut or other white fish.

Asparagus, Leek, and Potato Soup

Rating: Unrated
This was just a creation I came up with when my asparagus was looking a little old. At first, I thought I was going to add some sort of cream base, but the soup ended up not needing it. The vegetables just taste lovely as they are. Even my husband who hates soup and asparagus LOVED this! It is also a great way to use almost-expired vegetables in your veggie drawer!

Chef John's Asparagus Souffle

Rating: Unrated
Contrary to popular belief, souffles are not very difficult, as long as you respect the laws of physics. I hope you give this recipe a try, and also experiment with other vegetables. Broccoli, artichokes, leeks, spinach, or any other edible plant you can puree should work with the same basic procedure.
