Beet risotto

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
5 cups Chicken or vegetable broth; divided use
2 tablespoons Unsalted butter
1 tablespoon Oil
⅓ cup Onion; minced
5½ cup Arborio rice
½ cup Dry white wine
2 \N Fresh beets (green tops removed); washed, peeled, d
¼ cup Whipping cream
⅓ cup Parmesan cheese; grated
1 tablespoon Fresh parsley; chopped
\N \N Sprigs of italian parsley

1. Place broth in saucepan; bring to a simmer. Turn heat to low and keep broth at a low simmer. 2. Heat butter and oil in a heavy-bottom 4-quart Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 1-2 minutes or until it begins to soften, being careful not to brown it.

3. Add rice and stir for 1 minute, making sure all the grains are well-coated. Add wine and stir until wine is completely absorbed.

Add beets and ½ cup of the hot broth. When broth is almost completely absorbed, add another ½ cup of hot broth. Stir for 30 seconds. Continue to cook on medium to medium high heat, adding broth in ½ cups, stirring for 30 seconds and cooking until almost all the broth is absorbed. 4. After approximately 18 minutes, when the rice is tender but still a little firm and all broth has been added and absorbed, remove from heat and stir in cream, parmesan and chopped parsley. Stir vigorously to combine.

Presentation: Spoon into 4 shallow bowls and garnish each bowl with a sprig of fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley. Serve immediately.
