Beetroot, Spinach & Goats Cheese Risotto
This is the first time I have cooked with raw beetroot. I usually buy the pre-cooked versions for ease, but I saw this recipe on the Vitamix website and just had to try it. The problem with raw beetroot is that if you break the skin, the bright red pigment leaks out and stains everything it makes contact with, including skin. I can’t see the damage I have made by cutting them to go in my blender, but I’m sure I created a mess. The end result however was worth any mess. The rich, earthy flavour that the beetroot stock gave to the dish was incredible. If you love beetroot then you just have to try it! If you don’t have a blender that can handle juicing raw beetroot, then by it premade. It would work just as well.
