Total time:
Serves 4
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound asparagus, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 3 cups chicken broth, simmering
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ⅔ cup white wine
  • 2 large leeks, white and pale green parts, sliced
  • 1 (8.8) ounce package Boscaiolo Risotto mix
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 (10.23) ounce jar Artichokes alla Contadina, cut into eighths
  • ¼ cup Parmesan + more for serving
  • 3 tablespoons chives, chopped
Poached Eggs
  1. Crack an egg into a small bowl and slide into a large skillet with salted simmering water to which you have added 1 tablespoon vinegar.
  2. Cook until the whites are cooked and the yolk is still not set completely, about 3 - 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl of ice water. Keep skillet with water on stove top to reheat eggs prior to serving. Eggs can be prepared 1 day ahead of time and stored in refrigerator until ready to reheat.
  1. In a large saucepan bring broth to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat, cover and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, add 2 tablespoons olive oil to a large sauté pan or 3 quart cast iron casserole, until the oil shimmers. Add asparagus, cooking until tender about 5 - 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate and set aside.
  3. Heat butter and remaining oil in sauté pan or casserole until butter begins to foam. Add leeks and cook until they become soft, about 4 - 5 minutes. Add Bascaiolo and cook until rice becomes transparent, about 1 - 2 minutes. Add wine and cook until it is completely absorbed, about 4 minutes.
  4. Add 1 cup of broth, stirring often until the broth is almost completely absorbed. Continue adding cupfuls of broth allowing each addition to be absorbed before adding more. The rice is done when it is tender but still firm to the bite, and the mixtures is creamy, about 20 minutes.
  5. Add lemon juice, lemon zest, asparagus and artichokes into the risotto and warm through. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan.
  6. Serve risotto with warmed poached eggs over the top and a grating of Parmesan and chopped chives.
