Beet Quinoa Risotto

Jul, 17, 2012

! found beautiful beets at the farmers market today and make old favorite beet risotto with quinoa instead of rice. I love this risotto because it’s very slightly sweet and so pretty pink from the beets. I dish that makes me happy.





1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup quinoa
2 1/2 cup vegetable broth
1 cup beets, peeled and diced small
1/2 cup sour cream
Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Heat oil in a skillet on medium heat.
  • Saute beets for a few minutes.
  • Add quinoa and broth and simmer for about 10 minutes or until beets are done and all broth is gone.
  • Remove from heat and add sour cream and blend well but carefully so you don’t end up with mush.
