Beetroot Risotto

Beetroot Risotto

When I was pregnant, I ate beetroot almost every day. I like it very much, yes I am that kind of persons that loves vegetables.. It’s rich of minerals, vitamins, in particular folic acid, however this risotto is one of my top recipes for a mum-with-kids: it’s very easy to prepare, rich of vitamins and absolutely sweet, kids will adore it! But it could be a perfect risotto to share with friends for a dinner, actually you are going to look great with this “purple risotto”!




  • 280 gr Carnaroli Rice
  • 1 shallot
  • 50 gr butter
  • 3 cooked beetroot
  • a little white wine
  • Philadelphia to taste
  • vegetables broth




  • Slice beetroots and pureé until smooth with a mixer
  • In a saucepan, saute the shallot finely sliced with butter.
  • Just shallot begins to brown, add rice and toast for a few minutes. Pour a little white wine and let it evaporate over high heat, then reduce and cook the risotto by adding broth a little at a time.
  • Add beetroot 5 minutes before taking off and stir
  • At the end add Philadelphia to taste
  • Before serving, add a stick of butter

Please let me know your comments, if kids enjoy it!
