How I made beet risotto.

This one is without any milk or cream.
First I fried onion and garlic.

Then added rice and fried a little on a hot pan.

After that I shocked the rice with little bit of wine and added water.
I didn't have fresh herbs, so I used dry Italian herbs.

After water evaporated I poured more, covered the dish and turned heat on low.

I needed rice to be almost ready, al dente.
Meanwhile I cleaned cooked beats and cut them.
Then incorporated them with my risotto.

It turned beautiful red color!Also I added some Parmesan cheese.
Now it's ready! Yum!
 or with cheese.
As for the pairing-This is creamy and a little sweeter dish. I would have with
this wine from Rhone

It's very fruity with good acidity, it will create good balance with the dish.
