  • Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat. Add the shallots, garlic, thyme and saffron, and sauté for 2 minutes or until the shallots are tender but do not brown. Add the rice and sauté for 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the white wine and cook for 3 minutes, or until it is absorbed. Add 3/4 cup/175 ml of the hot vegetable stock and cook, stirring constantly, until absorbed. Continue adding the hot stock, 3/4 cup/175 ml at a time, until the rice is al dente (the center of each grain of rice should be slightly firm). This should take about 22 minutes.
  • Add the asparagus and continue to cook for 2 minutes. Remove the stems of thyme. The leaves of the thyme should have fallen off the stems and into the risotto. Remove the risotto from the heat, and stir in the butter, grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and mascarpone cheeses until the butter has melted. Stir in the parsley and lemon juice and season the risotto generously to taste with salt and pepper. Divide the risotto among four warm serving bowls. Garnish with some of the asparagus tip pieces and shaved parmesan cheese, and serve.
