Romantic Risotto

Last night I tried a new recipe and made a very romantic looking red/pink risotto. It was originally a Waitrose Valentines recipe so I can’t take credit for the idea, but It was delicious and quite healthy. 

Obviously making a risotto is a standard procedure – but for this one, get 125g of beetroot and grate half of it in to the stock to change the colour. This immediately dyes it pinky/red and it looks great! Later on when the risotto is pretty much cooked – add the rest of the beetroot, along with spinach and small chunks of salmon. 

This could be substituted for chicken, or just left totally meat-less if you prefer. 









As usual sorry about my poor photos, I get far too excited and into the cooking to remember to document it! Also definitely time to buy a new camera…
