Risotto is a cheesy rice preparation that is now popular all over the world. In this fantabulous version, the risotto is embellished with grated beetroot and onions, which give a yummy taste and vibrant red colour to it.
A dash of thyme gives the Creamy Beetroot Risotto a tongue-tickling flavour while ingredients like vegetable stock and milk together with loads of cheese give it a luxuriant mouth-feel.
Do not add all the vegetable stock together. Add it 1/2 cup at a time, and continue to add once it is absorbed. Make sure you serve the risotto immediately because any dish with cheese has a tendency to get chewy after a while.
