Beet Risotto

2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion chopped
1 cup Arborio rice
¼ cups white wine
2-3 cups of veggie or chicken stock
¼ cup parmesan cheese
Salt and black pepper to taste
2 cups chopped beets ( I cook beets whole and then chop)

In sauce pan heat up veggie stock to a little simmer.

In another pan, sauté the onion in the olive oil until translucent.  Add the risotto and swirl it around, coating it with oil and onions, and let it toast a bit. About 2-3 minutes.  Add the wine. Stir.  When the wine cooks off, add the heated stock, about half a cup at a time, stirring until it’s fully absorbed, and then add another ½ cup.  Keep stirring.  It takes about 18 minutes to make risotto, so I set my timer for 10 minutes and then add the beets and cook for 8 minutes more.  When the risotto is neither mushy nor chewy, add one more splash of stock and cover for just one minute.  It shouldn’t be too wet or too dry.  After a minute or so, add the Parmesan cheese and stir in.  Taste for seasoning and adjust.  It can be made day before or earlier in day; you just may have to add a little more stock. Yes, it will be pink, but delicious!
