Risotto might just be the perfect dish for spring. It's rich and satisfying for the chilly nights, but not quite as heavy as a winter stew. Plus risottos are good for stretching a handful of early spring peas or a bunch of fresh ramps into a full meal! Here are some good ones we're looking forward to trying. For a refresher on how to make a basic risotto, check out our step-by-step tutorial. 1. Lemony Risotto with Asparagus and Shrimp from Gourmet - We're definitely not tired of asparagus yet, and pairing it with shrimp sounds fantastic! 2. Ramp Risotto from New York Magazine - Ramps taste like a cross between onions and garlic and are amazing in creamy dishes like this. 3. Roman Risotto with Radishes from Epicurious - We've got radishes on the brain this week! 4. Asparagus and Morel Mushroom Risotto from Food & Wine - If you're lucky enough to lay your hands on (or find!) fresh morels, here's what to do with them. 5. Sweet Pea Risotto from Real Simple - This sounds like an adult version of the creamy peas and rice we had as kids! What are your favorite risottos right now?
