Beetroot Orzotto3.9/5 (BASED ON 162 reviews)
Orzotto is the name for our lighter, risotto-style dish made with small, rice-shaped pasta called “orzo”, which has a velvety texture when cooked. Fresh beetroot gives this its distinctive colour and is paired with our mustard seed, peppercorn and dill blend. A white wine reduction provides depth and the creamy goat's cheese melts into the pasta along with wilted rocket. This dish is excellent as a light supper.

Our 30 minute recipe
Cook the onion
Boil 400ml of water in your kettle.
Melt the butter in a non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Add the onion. Stir occasionally to soften it for 3 mins, then add the MUSTARD DILL SEASONING and mix it in.
Add the beetroot
Add the orzo pasta and fry for 1 min, then add the WHITE WINE REDUCTION and a splash of water to the pan.
Add the beetroot and mix well.
Let it simmer
Add the ORZOTTO STOCK with 400ml boiling water. Bring it to the boil then cover with a lid (slightly askew), reduce the heat to medium-low and let it cook for 15-20 mins, stirring every so often.
You can add 100ml more water if it’s getting too dry.
Add the goat's cheese
When the pasta is cooked to your liking (it should be soft, like risotto), stir in half of the goat’s cheese.
Add a handful of rocket and stir it in to wilt it.
Serve the pasta in bowls, topped with some fresh rocket and a couple of teaspoons of goat’s cheese as garnish, which will slowly melt.
If you’re having walnuts, sprinkle them on top and get stuck in.

I substituted fresh asparagus for the beetroot and it was much better. I may try courgette or red peppers next time.

A bit too beetrooty for me.
Alicja - Jun 28, 2018
It doesn’t kill your taste buds by being super spicy, which is a nice change for me since I use Simply Cook. It has a nice and unique flavour. I used macaroni pasta instead :)

Beetroot was the overpowering taste so we could not taste the herb /spice pots!
Harry - Apr 22, 2018
Not for me.
Jonathan - Feb 28, 2018
My husband liked it, unfortunately I had an unfortunate experience as a child with beetroot soup. I am keen to try everything we are given, but not beetroot again
Luca - Feb 16, 2018
Beetroot and goat's cheese or feta just match well. No exception in this unusual dish here.
