1 tbsp oil

Level of difficulty:
- Peel the shallots and dice finely. Wash and peel the asparagus and chop off the woody ends. Heat oil in a flat pan, add onions and cook until translucent.
- Add the rice, braise briefly and then top up with white wine. Allow to simmer for approx. 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, and top up occasionally with hot vegetable stock.
- Meanwhile, roughly chop the asparagus. Add the asparagus approx. 5 minutes before the end of cooking time. Grate the cheese and add the parmesan as soon as the rice is ready. Season with salt and pepper.
- Cut Tiroler Speck PGI Loin into fine slices and lightly fry in a pan. Serve the risotto on plates and garnish with parmesan and Tiroler Speck PGI Loin.
