    LOVE life: Super beetroot risotto

     

    Total time:               Ready in 35 mins

    Serves: 2

    Ingredients

    Small knob essential Waitrose Olive Spread
    1 onion, finely chopped
    500ml Cooks’ Ingredients Vegetable Stock
    250g pack G’s Naturally Wholesome Ready to Eat Beetroot, rinsed and coarsely grated
    1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
    150g Waitrose Arborio Risotto Rice
    100ml red wine
    1 tbsp Parmigiano Reggiano, finely grated
    ½ x 20g pack dill, eaves chopped
    50g essential Waitrose French Soft Goat’s Cheese

    Method

    1. Heat the olive spread in a large saucepan, add the onion and cook gently for 5 minutes until softened.
        
    2. Meanwhile, heat the stock and 100ml water in a small pan with half the grated beetroot. Cover and keep warm.

    3. Add the garlic to the onion pan and cook for a further minute, then stir in the rice. Cook for a minute, stirring until the rice is coated in the butter, then pour over the wine and allow it to sizzle and reduce.

    4. Gradually add the hot stock, a ladleful at a time. Stir well and allow the stock to be absorbed by the rice before adding the next ladleful. When you’ve added almost all the stock, fold through the rest of the beetroot and continue to cook until you have a soft and creamy risotto.
        
    5. Stir through the Parmigiano Reggiano and dill then divide between shallow bowls. Top with the goat’s cheese and a grinding of black pepper and serve.
