.: When we were young

It’s hard to admit that
Everything just takes me back
To when you were there
To when you were there
And a part of me keeps holding on
Just in case it hasn’t gone
I guess I still care
Do you still care?

It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
My God, this reminds me
Of when we were young

Ingredients:

butter
onion
broth
rice
asparagus
grated cheese (parmigiano)

When I was a kid we didn’t have a garden. That’s why my dad decided to use some of his money to buy a small plot of land: he wanted to grow vegetables of his own. So, now I have asparagus and risotto is a good way to eat them.

 

 

Sì un tempo avevamo solo un cortile, e non un orto. Così a un certo punto mio padre decise di comprare un piccolo lotto di terra per coltivare frutta e verdura, ed ecco come oggi posso avere dei meravigliosi asparagi, con cui si può fare un bel risotto.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oggi ho deciso di fare il soffritto con il burro, so you can brown some onion with butter (sweet butter, not the salted one). Melt butter

and mince the onion to brown it

Then you have to boil the asparagus in water and chop them. I like to make a cream of them. Bollite gli asparagi e tritateli nella misura che desiderate. Inoltre preparate del parmigiano grattugiato. Prepare some grated parmesan cheese, and the rice

Then cook the rice as I told before, for any risotto: you put it in the pan and add a bit of broth, let i evaporate and add some more, until the rice is cooked. Then 3 or 4 minutes before the rice is done, you add the asparagus cream. Aggiungete gli asparagi 3 o 4 minuti prima della fine della cottura del riso

Mescolate. Blend everything. Then add the cheese and blend again. If you like it tasty and creamy, add more cheese. Con più formaggio risulterà più cremoso e saporito, se ne mettete meno, sarà più delicato.

I like it tasty, so I add more cheese

And that’s it.

I my old yard I didn’t have asparagus, but maybe I was fantasizing that one day I would be able to mess up with food. Sometimes kids’ dreams come true 🙂
