Recipe Ingredients for Beet and Beet Green Risotto with Horseradish

1 small onion, finely chopped
3 beets (medium red)
3 cups beet leaves
4 cups chicken stock
1/4 stick unsalted butter
1 cup Arborio rice
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 tablespoon bottled horseradish

Recipe Directions for Beet and Beet Green Risotto with Horseradish

  1. Finely chop onion and trim stems close to tops of beets. Cut greens into 1/4-inch-wide slices and chop stems. Peel beets and cut into fine dice.

  2. In a small saucepan bring chicken stock to a simmer and keep at a bare simmer.

  3. In a 3-quart heavy saucepan cook onion in butter over moderate heat until softened. Add beets and stems and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Stir in rice and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Stir in 1 cup simmering chicken stock and cook, stirring constantly and keeping at a strong simmer, until absorbed. Continue cooking at a strong simmer and adding stock, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly and letting each addition be absorbed before adding next. After 10 minutes, stir in greens and continue cooking and adding stock, about 1/2 cup at a time, in same manner until rice is tender and creamy-looking but still al dente, about 8 minutes more. (There may be stock left over.) Remove pan from heat and stir in Parmesan.

  4. Serve risotto topped with horseradish.
