DIRECTIONS

  • Roast asparagus: place asparagus in a single layer on a baking s heet. Brush evenly with 1 T. olive oil; lightly sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Bake, uncovered, in 450-degree oven about 10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Cool slightly. Cut two-thirds into 2-inch pieces; set aside all asparagus.
  • While the asparagus is roasting, cook leeks in a large saucepan in 1 T. olive oil until tender. Stir in uncooked rice. Cook and stir over medium heat about 5 minutes or until rice begins to turn golden brown.
  • In another saucepan bring broth to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer. Carefully stir 1 cup of hot broth into rice mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat until liquid is absorbed. Then add 1/2 cup broth at a time, stirring frequently until broth is absorbed before adding more broth (about 22 minutes in total).
  • Stir in any remaining broth. Cook and stir just until rice is tender and creamy.
  • Stir in asparagus pieces, cheese, parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, and pepper. Top with asparagus spears and lemon slices.
