Recipe: Oven-baked beetroot risotto

Beetroot-risotto-436

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 6/ 200 ° C/ fan oven 180 ° C.
  2. Warm the oil in an ovenproof casserole dish over a medium heat. Add the onion, season well, and fry, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until the onion has started to soften.
  3. Stir in the rice and beetroot, then add the wine and cook, stirring, for 2– 3 minutes or until the wine has been absorbed. Stir in the hot vegetable stock, cover with a tight fitting lid and bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the rice is tender.
  4. Stir in the Parmesan, butter and dill. Taste and adjust the seasoning, then serve on warm plates with a peppery green salad. KITCHEN TIP Leftover risotto can be shaped into rounds, dipped in flour and fried in a splash of olive oil, turning once, until crunchy and heated all the way through. Serve with salad and a poached egg.
