Rosy Beet Risotto
Hot Chicken Recipe

Image by LollyKnit
Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens, April 2008 issue

2 medium beets
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium red onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups Arborio or short-grain rice
2 Tbsp fresh basil
2 14 oz. broth (veggie or chicken)
1/2 c crumbled blue cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place beets in center of 18" square of aluminum foil. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Fold ends of foil , allowing room for steam to build inside. Roast for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until tender. Cool for 30 minutes. Open packet carefully. Remove beets; gently transfer liquid to measuring cup; add water to equal 1/2 cup. Pour liquid in medium saucepan. Cut beets into wedges.

In 3-qt. saucepan, cook onion in remaining oil over medium heat. Add rice. Cook and stir for 5 minutes. Stir in basil.

Meanwhile, add broth to beet liquid in saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer. Carefully stir 1 cup of hot broth into rice mixture. Cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat until liquid is absorbed. Then add 1.2 c broth at a time, stirring frequently until broth is absorbed before adding more broth. (Takes awhile – they estimate 22 minutes, but it took about 45 with our rice!)

Stir in remaining broth. Cook and stir just until rice is tender and creamy.

Add beets, heat through. Remove rice from heat, stir in half of cheese, snipped basil and salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle remaining cheese and basil.

Makes 8 side-dish servings.
