Beet Risotto

Long before Red Dye #40, there were beets.  And just a little bit of beet goes a looooong way!  This photo is unedited; it really was that bright.

 

The beet risotto recipe came from Rachel Ray and is fairly straightforward.  It’s even easier if you happen to roast the beets in advance.  Despite the bright color, the beet flavor was fairly subtle.  So even someone who doesn’t ordinarily like beets might give this a try.

While I really liked the dish, it lacked the creamy texture of traditional risotto.  So while I would make it again (maybe on Christmas?!), I now have a craving for something like this Mushroom Risotto.
