Supplies

serves 2 persons:

For the saffron risotto

  • 400ml (13.5oz) vegetable stock
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1tbs butter
  • 160g (0,35lb) risotto rice (arborio)
  • 1/2 package saffron 0,5 g
  • 50ml (1.69oz) white wine
  • 70g (0,15lb) grated parmesancheese
  • salt and black pepper

The beetroot patties

  • 500 g (1,1lb) beetroot
  • 2 tbs breadcrumbs
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp salt and black pepper
  • 2 tbs butter (for frying )

Yoghurt-garlic dip

  • 150g (0,33lb) yogurt or creme fraiche
  • ½ tsp salt and black pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • parsley

leaf lettuce is a sure companion for this dish





Step 1: Taking Care of the Beetroot

cook the beetroot until soft ( ca. 30 to 45 minutes ) - let cool in the water ( if you're in a hurry, cool it under running water)

peel of the beetroots skin - it should remove easily, you can take a spoon as help. I don't care about the red on my hands but you might want to wear gloves :)

Whisk the egg with salt and pepper

grate the beetroot into the egg

add bread crumbs and grated garlic

Step 2: Making Patties

Form 7 to 8 patties with your hands and set aside

note: I feel quite confident to cook with more than one dish at a time, if you are more the kind, that tends to burn food, fry the patties first, and make the risotto afterwards :) - I want you to succeed!

Step 3: Risotto Time

note: I feel quite confident to cook with more than one dish at a time, if you are more the kind, that tends to burn food, fry the patties first, and make the risotto afterwards :) - I want you to succeed!

bring the veggie stock to a boil in a seperate pot

chop the onion and garlic

heat up 1 tbs butter in a deep pan or wide pot.

fry the onion until soft

add risotto rice and garlic and fry for about 1-2 minutes

add saffron

add the wine, let it evaporate about half

now add about half of the veggie stock, lower the heat until the risotto just boils gently

stir occasionly

when the stock is absorbed, add more (hot) stock in small doses.

stir often

let cook until the rice is creamy and just al dente ( about 20minutes check the information on your rice package)

Step 4: Frying the Patties

meanwhile the risotto is cooking and you're adding new stock and stir once in a while,

heat up a frying pan with butter

fry the patties on low to medium heat

until they have a nice colour and feel firm.

( DON'T FORGET TO LOOK AFTER THE RISOTTO! )

Step 5: Finish the Golden Risotto

when the risotto is all creamy and al dente

turn off the heat

add grated parmesan

and add salt and black peppar to your taste

serve right away with the patties, fresh leaf lettuce and garlic dip.


Step 6: Yoghurt Garlic Dip

For the dip,

just mix

yoghurt

grated garlic

salt and peppar

parsley to taste


Step 7: Savor & Enjoy!

arrange all the good food you just prepared with fresh leaf lettuce, and parsley, serve right away

savor the great smell of saffron, that fills your kitchen and comes from your plate

enjoy the bright colours and taste!

    Well made Instructable. Very well done. I was intrigued by the Beet Patties. I love beets. No one else in my family can stand them. I'm not a huge saffron fan, so I gave the risotto a miss. I'm sure it is delicious too. The beet patties were fabulous. I will be bringing these to the big family Thanksgiving celebration. Thank you for posting!

    So glad you liked the beet patties!
    If you want to skip the risotto try something with feta or goats cheese - that goes brilliantly along with beet root!
    Happy days!
