Recipe Ingredients for Beet risotto

4 cups vegetable broth
1 1/2 T olive oil
1/2 c onion, finely diced
1 1/2 c arborio rice
2 T chopped parsley
2 cups beets, grated
3 cups baby spinach
1/2 c parmesan

Recipe Directions for Beet risotto

  1. Heat the stock until simmering. Heat the butter/olive oil in a big, wide pot. Add the onion, and cook over medium heat for about three minutes, stirring frequently. Add the rice, stir to coat it well, and cook it, stirring constantly, for one minute. You should see a white fleck in the middle of each grain of rice.

  2. Add the wine and simmer until it?s absorbed, then stir in the basil, the beets, the chopped greens, and half of the parsley. Add two cups stock, cover, and cook at a rapid simmer until the stock is absorbed. Begin adding the remaining stock cup at a time, stirring constantly until each addition is absorbed before adding the next. When the risotto is nearly done, season with salt and pepper to taste, then add the lemon juice and zest. It may taste really lemony, but it will mellow after a few minutes. Remove form the heat and stir in parmesan cheese ? feel free to add more than cup grated parmesan. Serve dusted with the cheese and the remaining parsley.
