Risotto Primavera

By Guvi @Guvi9

- 1 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth - 1/2 cup water - 4 tsp olive oil - 3 oz cremini mushrooms, trimmed and sliced thin - 1 small onion, chopped fine (I used 3 scallions) - 1/2 cup Arborio rice - 3 oz asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces - 1/4 cup frozen peas - 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra for serving - 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil - 1 tbsp unsalted butter - 2 tsp lemon juice - salt and pepper to taste
Bring broth and water to simmer in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat, cover and keep warm.
Heat 2 tsp oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat until shimmering. Add the mushrooms and 1/4 tsp salt and cook, covered, until just starting to brown, about 4 minutes. Transfer mushrooms in a bowl and set aside. Return now-empty pot to medium heat, add the remaining 2 tsp of oil and heat until shimmering, about 2 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring constantly, until grains are translucent around the edges, about 1 minute.
