Sposób wykonania / Instructions:

  • Heat olive oil in a frying pan, add chopped onion, garlic and thyme. Glaze on low heat for about 5 minutes.
  • In a separate pot, boil the broth with beetroot juice, crushed garlic clove, pepper to taste and possibly salt. Hold the pot with the broth on a small fire.
  • Pour the rice into the pan and onion and mix. After a minute of frying, pour in the wine and cook for about 3 minutes. Pour 1 tablespoon of broth and beetroot into the pan, mix and cook until all the liquid is reduced. Add another tablespoons of broth and cook as before until the broth is exhausted for about 25-30 minutes. After this time, the rice should be cooked al dente and the beets should be soft (add more broth if necessary). Finally, add the cubed beetroots. Mix
