Foraging with Alexis Nikole Nelson.
Classic risotto is made with starchy medium-grain Italian rice, such as Arborio or carnaroli. This “risotto” uses pearl couscous (which actually is a pasta) and a simplified risotto cooking method to produce “grains” with a rich, creamy consistency. The wheaty flavor of pearl couscous (sometimes called Israeli couscous or ptitim) is a perfect match for grassy, subtly sweet asparagus and the salty, nutty flavor of Parmesan cheese.
tablespoons (½ stick) salted butter, cut into 1-tablespoon pieces
medium yellow onion, chopped
