    This looks beautiful. I was actually going to make one this week for my in laws so no need to try and find a recipe now. I made one ages ago with mint that was nice too.

      I love to cook but not really spend lots of time in the kitchen preparing difficult meals, risotto is my exception, not that is difficult but because you need to be there stirring 🙂 🙂 Hope your in laws like it

    I have lots of beetroots in my allotment and always looking for new recipes. It’s very cold here at the moment, so I think risoto would be perfect. Thanks for sharing.
