Like New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day can often be a let down.

We build it up so much in our minds, that when the day arrives, the perfect outfit, dinner reservations, or celebration plans never seem to quite add up to what we imagined.

Sorry to be a Debby-downer, but it’s true.

Perfect Creamy Beet and Chevre Risotto Recipe

I have a solution for this… This year stay at home.

Don’t go buy the perfect outfit. Don’t spend hours online trying to book epic dinner reservations or concert tickets. Don’t spend money you don’t have on weekend getaway in the effort to impress someone.

Just don’t.

Instead spend time with the person (or people) you love, and cook them something amazing.

After all, Valentine’s Day isn’t about what someone else does for you… It’s about showing other people how you feel about them.

If you approach Valentine’s Day with a selfless attitude, you won’t care if you don’t receive dozens of roses or a gigantic engagement ring.

You’ll feel true joy and empowerment by how you make other people feel that day. #truth

Must Make: Creamy Beet and Chevre Risotto Recipe

How to Make Creamy Beet and Chevre Risotto Recipe

As with all risotto recipes, it’s best to start with arborio rice and warm (or room temperature) broth.

Arborio rice has an amazing ability to release its starches as it cooks, providing that smooth creamy finish. The broth is added to the pot a little at a time, and needs to be at least room temperature, so it doesn’t stop the rice from cooking with each addition.

Silky Creamy Beet and Chevre Risotto Recipe

The pink color is created by adding chunks of beets to the rice at the beginning of the cooking process.

With every addition of broth, and every stir, the beet dye releases into the rice with greater intensity. By the end, the Creamy Beet and Chevre Risotto will be somewhere between blush pink and deep magenta, depending on the size and freshness of the beet.

Creamy Beet and Chevre Risotto Recipe - Fresh pink risotto made with arborio rice, goat cheese, and beetroot. Delicious and visually appealing!
Servings: 8



  • Place a 6-quart heavy bottomed pot over medium heat. Add the butter, onions, and garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes to soften the onions. Then mix in the arborio rice, beet wedges, thyme, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Add 1 cup of broth to the pot at a time. Stir well, making sure the rice doesn't stick to the bottom, then add another cup of broth when the rice has absorbed the first. Slowly add the broth and constantly stir to create an ultra creamy texture.
  • When there is only one cup of broth left to add, stir it in along with the chevre goat cheese. Once the cheese has fully melted in, turn off the heat and remove the beet chunks. Taste, then salt and pepper as needed.


NOTES: Risotto should be served immediately, to experience its silky texture. If it must sit on the stove for a little while, add a little water and rewarm before serving.
