Sausage and Spring Pea Risotto

with Lemon and Parmesan

Read more

Spring has officially sprung! And with it, we find ourselves coming out of casserole-and-stew-laden hibernation and craving food that’s simple, bright, and—of course—delicious. This dish fits the bill perfectly. Creamy and luxurious, risotto is our favorite way to highlight springy flavors. This version has pops of green peas, bites of crispy pork sausage, and is finished with a squeeze of lemon juice. It’s as balanced as it is satisfying, making it pretty much impossible to put down your fork.

1

Remove sausage from casings; discard casings. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 5-7 minutes. Turn off heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage to a paper-towel-lined plate, keeping as much oil in the pan as possible.

Meanwhile, wash and dry all produce. Halve, peel, and mince shallot. Zest and quarter lemon (quarter both lemons for 4 servings). Combine 4 cups water (7 cups for 4) and stock concentrate in a medium pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat so mixture is at a low simmer.

Add ½ cup stock and rice to pan. Bring mixture to a simmer and cook, stirring, until liquid has mostly absorbed. Continue adding warm stock ½ cup at a time, stirring after each addition and letting liquid absorb before adding more. Continue until rice is al dente and creamy, 25-30 minutes.
