Creamy beet risotto with Blue Cheese Crumbles is the best of both worlds. Velvety al dente aborio rice slow cooked with subtle veggie-sweet beet infused chicken stock and topped with sharp, creamy blue cheese.
¹Al dente means the rice should have a bite to it, but still be cooked through. If you take a bite and hard pie es of rice get stuck in your teeth, the rice needs more cooking time.
²If you are planning to cook for a crowd later but want to prep in advance, the risotto can be partial cooked and then finished right before service. Cook the risotto, but stop halfway through the addition of the chicken stock. Remove from heat and spread in a single layer on a large sheet pan. Let cool until your ready to finish. Beet infused chicken stock should be warmed again to finish the creamy beet risotto.
