Golden Beet Risotto



Hi there. I can’t believe it, but this is finally my first blog entry! This has been something I’ve been wanting to do for a while…I have to admit, I am not a computer savvy person, which is why I haven’t done this sooner. After two failed attempts (and some costly life lessons learned along the way), I finally got together with a wonderful young lady who has helped me through this whole thing; and (drumroll please)  here… it… is! I am literally so excited to have this blog available to post all my recipes that I have developed over the years. YAYYYY!  And, I want to thank you so very much for stopping by and checking out my first recipe/post. Please come back often and I hope to share with you some wonderful recipes that will rock your world!!


So, I love risotto – it is one of my comfort foods. Even though I love making a plain parmesan risotto, I get bored with it. I thought golden beets would be a wonderful, earthy, winter twist.

Did you know beets are high in vitamins and minerals, as well as containing good amounts of fiber, iron, potassium and folic acid? They are heart healthy, help clean your kidneys, help lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and they treat anemia and fatigue. Those are some pretty good health benefits!

This risotto combines golden beets with kale, balsamic vinegar, and goat cheese for a hearty winter comfort meal. Golden beets are sweeter than red beets; they are also less earthy and mellower in intensity. If you want to introduce yourself to beets, start with this delicious recipe. And if you are already on the beet bandwagon, this one won’t disappoint!
