The fresh parsley and beets brings all together the flavor of this beautiful dish; with the creaminess from the cheese that allows the rice to taste amazingly exquisite. To serve simply spoon into 4 shallow bowls and garnish each bowl with a sprig of fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley. Bon appetite!


5 c Chicken or vegetable broth, divided use
2 tablespoons Unsalted butter
1/4 c Whipping cream
1/3 c Parmesan cheese; grated
1 tablespoons Fresh parsley; chopped
5 1/2 c Arborio rice

2 Fresh beets (green tops removed); washed, peeled, d
Sprigs of Italian parsley
1 tablespoons Oil
1/3 c Onion; minced

Cooking Steps:

  • In a saucepan bring the broth into boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer.
  • In a 4-quart Dutch oven melt butter and heat oil over medium heat, saute the onions for about 1 to 2 minutes or until tender.
  • Add rice and stir for about 1 minute to combine the entire ingredient to the rice.
  • Add wine and stir well until fully absorbed.
  • Add the beets and ½ cup of hot broth, stir for about 30 seconds. Continue cooking to medium-high heat, adding ½ cup broth. Stir until broth is absorbed for about 18 minutes.
  • Once the rice is tender but a little firm and liquid is absorbed, remove from the heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese, cream and parsley. Stir very well.
