Risotto with hop shoots step by step

Hops grow wild at my Aunt Alice's in the North of Veneto

Pick the new shoots and wash well, then chop.

Add a small chopped onion and then sauté with butter or olive oil (if making a vegan risotto).

Add carnaroli or another risotto rice and then, when the rice is hot, vegetable stock, ladle by ladle.

Keep stirring and adding stock (we made this over a wood fired kitchen, it didn't take long!)

Serve, by itself or with Parmigiano Reggiano
