Herbed beetroot risotto

Serves 2

Gluten free*

Low Histamine



1 tbs olive oil

¼ white onion, finely diced

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 tsp dried thyme

¾ cup arborio rice

2 small beetroot, cooked

2 cups vegetable stock

black pepper - optional

small handful parsley, chopped


1. Saute onion, garlic and thyme in a pan with olive oil.

2. Add the rice to the pan, and stir well so it is coated.

3. Gradually add the stock, stirring continuously. Wait until a ladle of stock has been absorbed into the rice prior to adding in another ladle. (The rice should take approximately 20-25 min to cook).

4. Add the cooked / prepared beetroot into a food processor and blend.

6. Stir the beetroot through the cooked rice.

7. Season with salt and pepper (if using).

6. Serve with a sprinkle with fresh parsley.


Carnaroli rice can also be used instead of arborio.

Stirring is important as it helps make thre risotto creamy.
