A colourful risotto, quick and simple to prepare with all the goodness of beetroot.

500g cooked beetroot, diced
3tsp olive oil
2tsp butter
1 large red onion (finely chopped)
850-1000ml litre vegetable stock, (homemade or low sodium)
300g risotto rice
25g parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and pepper to lightly season

How to prepare
1. Heat the stock in a pan on the hob and over a low heat.

2. In a pan melt the butter and oil and fry the onions until soft

3. Add the rice to the pan, stir and cook for 2  minutes

4. Add a couple of ladles full of stock to the rice, stir and cook until almost all the liquid has been absorbed before adding another few ladles of stock. Continue this process until around half the stock has been used.

5. Add the beetroot stir and continue to add a few ladles full of stock at a time, until the rice is tender. You may not need to use all the stock.
