2. Add rice and sauté with the onions and butter until the rice becomes translucent and starts to crack. Add the wine and stir

3. Make up the Essential Cuisine Vegetable Stock Mix with boiling water

4. Add the “hot” stock, one ladle at a time to the rice, constantly but gently stirring

5. Continue until all of the stock has been absorbed, the rice should still have a bite to it

6. Carefully stir in the cooked mushrooms and cherry tomatoes making sure it

7. Gently warm the asparagus spears in hot butter in a separate pan

8. Remove from the heat and stir in the mascarpone, asparagus and butter and correct the consistency with hot water if required. And season to your taste
