Lavender Recipes

Savory Lavender Beef Risotto

Savory Lavender Beef Risotto

 

Ingredients:

1 cup Arborio rice

1 sweet potato, diced into small cubes

1 leek, thinly sliced

1 cooking onion, diced

250g ground beef

4 cups chicken or vegetable broth

1/2 cup dry white wine (optional)

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon dried lavender

Salt and pepper to taste

Grated Parmesan cheese for serving (optional)

Instructions:

 

1. Heat the chicken or vegetable broth in a saucepan over low heat to keep it warm.

2. In a separate large pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion and minced garlic, and sauté until softened, about 3-4 minutes.

3. Add the sliced leek to the pan and continue to sauté for another 2-3 minutes until softened.

4. Add the ground beef to the pan with the onion, garlic, and leek. Cook until the beef is browned and cooked through, breaking it apart with a spoon as it cooks.

5. Stir in the diced sweet potato and dried lavender, and cook for another 5 minutes until the sweet potato begins to soften.

6. Add the Arborio rice to the pan and stir to coat it in the oil, onion, garlic, leek, beef, and sweet potato mixture. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the rice becomes slightly translucent.

7. If using, pour in the white wine and cook until it is absorbed by the rice.

8. Begin adding the warm broth to the pan, one ladleful at a time, stirring frequently and allowing each addition to be absorbed before adding more. Continue this process until the rice is creamy and tender, about 18-20 minutes.

9. Taste the risotto and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.

10. Serve the risotto hot, garnished with grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
