"Glossy like a gem and as richly colored as it is flavored! Feel free to enrich the stock with a Parmesan rind, bay leaf, spare carrots, or celery. If you like, you can add finely diced, cooked red beets when you add the rice. And, if you happen to have beetroot tops, slice them finely, toss them with a little lemon juice, let sit while you cook the risotto, and scatter onto each serving for added texture."
