Creamy Beetroot Risotto with Scallops

Hi there! Are you ready to cook something special for Christmas dinner? Then you are at the right place 🙂

Today, we will share our delicious risotto recipe that we prepared with fresh beetroot juice that I extracted with Novis VitaJuicer. I like to use Novis juicer not only for to make healthy juices but also for to create delicious recipes! I believe that a fresh beetroot juice gives a nice taste to this risotto and hope you tried at home too.

Here are the details:

Ingredients for 2 person
Takes 25 – 30 mins.

  • 1 medium beetroot – Extract its juice
  • 1 small steamed beetroot – cut in into small cubes
  • 1 small onion
  • 150 gr of Arborio rice
  • 50 ml of white wine
  • 500 gr of vegetable stock
  • 6 scallops
  • 50 gr parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoon of butter


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until browned.
  2. Then add the rice, some salt and stir it.
  3. Add wine and cook the rice until the wine is evaporated.
  4. Once the wine is completely evaporated, start adding the beetroot juice, beetroot cubes. Stir it gently and slowly add the vegetable broth and continue cooking. Normally, I add little bit of broth and let it evaporated, then add the rest of the broth slowly until the rice is cooked ( it takes normally 15-20 mins).
  5. While the rice is cooking, start grilling your scallops. For this, first dry the scallops with a kitchen towel, they must be wet 🙂 Add a tablespoon of scallops in a pan, grill each side for 2mins.
  6. Once the rice is cooked, then add the parmesan cheese and stir it very gently and Serve your delicious risotto with seared scallops. Your dinner is ready!
