Beet and Cheddar Risotto

West Creek CSA

1 Beet, peeled and quartered

2 c Beet Greens, stems trimmed

2 c Water

2 c Vegetable broth

2 T Olive oil

1 Onion, minced

1 c Arborio Rice

8 oz. Cheddar Cheese, shredded

Salt and Pepper to taste

Parmesan Cheese, grated

Place the beet and greens in a blender or food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Bring the water and broth to a simmer in a large pot over medium-low heat. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; cook and stir the onion in the oil until tender, about 3 minutes. Add the rice; cook and stir another 2 minutes. Mix in the beet and beet green mixture, cooking another minute. Pour in the broth mixture 1 cup at a time, allowing the liquid to be absorbed before adding each batch, stirring continually; reduce heat to medium and simmer 20 minutes. Stir in the cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Continue stirring until creamy and thick, about 3 minutes more. Serve with parmesan cheese.
