A note about serious food allergies
There have been famous and illustrious triumvirates throughout history, but none shine quite like sweet roasted beet, creamy goat cheese, and salty, crunchy pistachios. There's a balance and harmony between these three elements: science can't explain it, religion can't decode it, and the arts have yet to truly capture it. Yet you've created it for your simple weeknight meal. What can we say? Some flavors remain eternal. Tip: It's hip to be square! Get perfectly square beet cubes by first removing top and bottom, then halving. Slice into planks, and then easily slice into cubes

Meat lovers! If using protein, cook in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. If using steak strips or flank steak, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally in hot pan with 1 tsp. olive oil until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes. If using shrimp, pat dry and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook with 1 tsp. olive oil undisturbed in hot pan until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes. Flip, and cook until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes. Top risotto with proteins.
Roast the Beet
Trim ends off beet, peel, and cut into a large dice.
Place diced beet on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into beets.
Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until tender, 20-25 minutes.
Wash hands and cutting board after working with beet; it's used as a dye for a reason!
While beet roasts, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Coarsely chop pistachios.
Start the Risotto
Place a medium pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add rice and garlic to hot pot. Stir occasionally until rice is toasted and opaque, 1-2 minutes.
Add white cooking wine and cook until mostly evaporated, 30-60 seconds.
Add 1 cup boiling water from small pot and mirepoix base to pot with rice. Rice should just be covered by broth. Stir often until nearly all broth is absorbed.
Finish the Risotto
Add ½ cup boiling water and stir often until nearly all broth is absorbed. Repeat this process, stirring often, 18-20 minutes.
Taste risotto as you cook, checking for tenderness. When rice has no more “bite” or crunch, it's done. There may be water left.
Remove from burner. Stir in butter, Parmesan, and ¼ tsp. salt. If beets are still roasting, cover risotto and set aside.
Finish the Dish
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping risotto with diced beet, pistachios, and goat cheese (crumbling with your hands if needed). Bon appétit!
