Rice with beet juice

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 Beets; scrubbed and trimmed
½ teaspoon Sugar
4 cups Chicken stock
6 tablespoons Unsalted butter
1 Onion; finely chopped
4 Garlic cloves; minced
2 cups Long-grain white rice
½ bunch Italian parsley; leaves only, finely chopped

In a medium saucepan, combine the beets with enough salted water to cover by 3 inches. Add the sugar and simmer, covered, for 20 to 30 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a knife. Drain the beets and remove the skin. In a blender, puree the beets with the chicken stock (you will need to do this in two batches). Set aside. In a large saucepan, heat the butter over moderate heat. Add the onion and saute until soft, about 5 minutes.

Add the garlic and rice, and saute another minute. Stir in the reserved beet puree and boil the mixture, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes, or until thickened slightly. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Sprinkle the chopped parsley over the rice and serve immediately. This recipe yields 4 to 6 servings.
