When it comes to a quick and easy dinner, you just can't beat a Thermomix risotto! And this Thermomix Lemon Risotto with Asparagus, Prosciutto & Cherry Tomatoes is the most deliciously fresh and simple dinner. Trust me, you're going to LOVE it!
To make this risotto, you cook a really basic lemon risotto in the Thermomix. While it's cooking, pop the asparagus, prosciutto and cherry tomatoes into a frying pan or grill pan and cook until the prosciutto is crispy and the asparagus is lightly grilled.
Allow the lemon risotto to rest (and thicken) for a few minutes - preferably in the ThermoServer. Serve with the grilled asparagus, prosciutto and cherry tomatoes and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.
