Golden Beet Risotto

Serves 4-6

2 cups peeled raw beets, cut into chunks

8 cups PC Organics Vegetable Broth

3 whole pieces of star anise

2 tablespoons PC New World EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 yellow onion, diced small

4 large garlic cloves, minced

2 cups PC Splendido Arborio Rice

1 cup white wine

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons butter

Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Place golden beets in a food processor and blend until fine. Set aside.
  2. Lightly simmer the chicken broth and star anise together in a pot.
  3. Splash the olive oil into a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  4. Toss in the onions, garlic and pureed beets. Quickly sauté until golden and fragrant.
  5. Add the arborio rice and stir continually over medium high heat.
  6. Continue to cook, until the rice grains transform from pure white to almost entirely opaque.
  7. Splash in the white wine and stir frequently as the rice quickly absorbs the liquid.
  8. Reduce your heat to low. Start adding the hot chicken stock in several additions.
  9. Continue to cook stirring frequently after each addition allowing the rice to absorb the broth.
  10. Cook the risotto until just tender or al dente.
  11. Remove star anise from rice.
  12. To finish stir in the Parmesan and butter. Season with salt and pepper.
