beetroot risotto...why haven't i thoguht of this??

So Dom over at Belleau Kitchen posted this FANTASTIC blog a couple of days ago and I couldn't wait to try it! Lucsious red beetroot stock and little cubes of beetroot combined with parmesean cheese and handfuls of chopped parsley and basil. Yum yum! I wasn't sure about using the beetroot stock to cook the rice in, I thought maybe...a little...too...earthy??  But, I was so wrong! It was sweet and mixed nicely with the stronger beetroot chunks and salty cheese...


  1. YUM !!!!!! I want some.....


  2. oh bless you for the mention... it is a stunner isn't it? Glad the man gave it a try and liked it... think it will be an excellent dish for halloween!

  3. Nice. I cooked something similar a while ago. Looks delicious.
