Beetroot Risotto with Goat's Cheese and Walnuts

Serves 4-6

2 large beetroot, quartered

J. Friend & Co Native Honey Collection , Salvagno Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil  and fresh thyme to roast beetroot

1 Tbsp Forum Cabernet Sauvignon Vinegar

75g Kernelz Walnuts Pieces

1 Tbsp white sugar

11/2 cups Ferron Carnaroli Rice

1 litre Sabato Vegetable Stock , simmering

1 large red onion, finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

30 gm butter

1 Tbsp EVO

100ml red wine 

1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

150 g Buchette Nostalgie Plain  to serve

Micro greens to garnish


Drizzle the beetroot with a little honey, olive oil and fresh thyme and wrap securely in tinfoil.  Roast at 180C for 1 hour.  When cool, peel ½ of the beetroot and purée with the Cabernet Sauvignon vinegar using a stick blender.  Finely dice the remaining beetroot and set aside. Gently toss the walnuts in sugar and roast in a pan over medium heat until lightly caramelised and toasted. Set aside.In a heavy-based saucepan, heat the butter and EVO and sauté the onion and garlic until soft (the ‘soffrito’). Add the rice and thyme leaves and stir continuously for about 3 minutes (to ‘toast’ the rice). Add the wine and let it evaporate. Add the hot stock and pureed beetroot, then stir gently and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes. Add the diced beetroot, season and rest off the heat for 2 minutes, then ‘mantecare’ - stir the risotto to release the natural starches which will make it creamy. Sprinkle with the goat’s cheese and walnuts and top with microgreens. A drizzle of Colonna mandarin oil is optional and delicious!
