Ingredients List
  1. 14 ounces asparagus
  2. 1 tub Knorr® Homestyle Stock - Chicken
  3. 4 cups water
  4. 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  5. 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  6. 1 1/2 cups uncooked arborio rice
  7. 1/4 cup dry white wine
  8. 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
  9. 1/4 cup margarine
  10. 6 sprigs fresh chervil or fresh parsley



1. Remove tips from asparagus, peel and cut stems into 1/4-inch thick slices; set both aside. Stir Knorr® Homestyle Stock - Chicken into hot water; set aside and keep warm.

2. Heat oil in heavy-duty saucepan and cook onion, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly colored, about 5 minutes. Stir in rice and cook, stirring occasionally, 1 minute. Stir in wine and cook 1 minute.

3. Pour in just enough Stock to cover rice. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently, then reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently and gradually stirring in Stock, until liquid is absorbed, about 25 minutes. If necessary, stir in additional hot water, 1/2 cup at a time, until rice is tender.

4. Stir in asparagus during last 5 minutes of cooking. Stir in Parmesan, margarine and chervil. Garnish, if desired, with additional fresh chervil or parsley.
