Let’s see how to make this recipe.

Keep these ingredients handy;

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup onion, small dice
  • 1 cup short-grain black rice
  • 240 ml of sparkling water with 2 drops of vanilla
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup (about 4 to 5 stalks) asparagus cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup frozen (thaw or freshly shucked) peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh black pepper
  • 2 teaspoon fresh chopped mint
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons coconut butter

Cooking instructions;

  1. Heat a 2-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Melt the coconut oil, then add the onion, cook until translucent, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the rice and cook for an additional 2 minutes. This toasts the rice and gives it a wonderful nutty flavor. Pour in the sparkling water and allow it to reduce by half before adding 12 ounces of stock. Stir often and allow the rice to absorb most of the liquid before adding more. Continue cooking the rice, adding the liquid in 4-ounce increments, and remembering to stir often.
  2. When the rice feels just about fully cooked add the asparagus and continue to cook. At this point, the rice should be thick and creamy. Add the peas, stir to combine, and heat through. Season with the salts, black pepper, and stir in the mint and coconut butter. Serve immediately.

There! Enjoy your vegan Risotto with peas, asparagus, and mint.
