This was yummy. I added pine nuts as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain the beetroot juice into a jug and add the vegetable stock to that to make up about 1 litre.
  2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until just softened.
  3. Add the rice and thyme and stir to coat the rice grains in the butter.
  4. Add the red wine to the rice and continue cooking until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
  5. Add the stock mixture, a ladleful at a time, stirring to prevent catching and allowing the liquid to be absorbed before adding the next ladleful. Continue for about 20 minutes until the rice is cooked but slightly al dente.
  6. Dice the beetroot into small cubes, and then add to the risotto, along with two-thirds of the chopped walnuts.
  7. To serve, crumble the goats' cheese over the beetroot risotto, sprinkle with the remaining walnuts and then garnish with some wild rocket.
