  1. In a small saucepan, bring broth to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to low and add dried mushrooms; let mushrooms rehydrate 20 minutes. Remove mushrooms from broth, leaving broth over low heat; coarsely chop mushrooms.
  2. Add remaining tablespoon olive oil to the skillet. Add shallot and garlic; cook 1 minute. Add rice, cook and stir 2 minutes.
  3. Add wine, stirring constantly, until wine is fully absorbed. Add 1/2 cup warm broth to the rice; cook and stir until broth is absorbed. Continue adding broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until liquid is absorbed and rice is al dente, about 20 minutes. Add asparagus with last addition of broth. Remove from heat.
