    Time: 40 mins

    1. Warm some olive oil in a pan, add the onions & cook them until they’re translucent.
    2. Add the garlic, dairy free butter & fry until you release the aroma of the garlic.
    3. Add the rice, & stir it round so it’s all well covered in the juices of the other ingredients.
    4. Add the wine, lemon juice & stir it until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
    5. Pour in a cup of stock & stir until it’s all been absorbed - repeat this process until all the stock has been used - it will take a long time but trust us, it will be well worth it!
    6. Add the asparagus, beans, peas & stir into the risotto rice for around 12 minutes (or until the vegetables have softened to your liking - if the rice is drying out, add a bit of water.
    7. Add the herbs, stir them in, add the asparagus spears, hazelnuts, salt & stir them in too.
    8. Serve immediately & garnish with roasted hazelnuts.
    9. Live Fully ✨
