We've packed this vegan take on an Italian mainstay — the beet risotto — with tons of veggies and crave-able summer flavor. It all starts with perfectly-cooked orzo: it's got risotto's signature creamy texture, but with zero cream or dairy. Next come golden beets (red beets' vibrant cousin) and currants, which add delightful pops of sweetness. It's rounded out with a healthy portion of rainbow chard for extra crunch and a flavorful sprinkle of tangy capers. The result: a simply irresistible dish you'll feel good about eating again and again.
A leafy relative of the beet, the beautiful rainbow chard is a nutrient powerhouse. High in calcium, magnesium and potassium, it has a rainbow of health benefits, like reducing inflammation and regulating blood pressure. That means it's good for the heart and good for the belly — so go ahead and dig in!
These little flavor bombs are an Italian staple and add the perfect tangy pop to this dish.
Currants are just now emerging as a household name — and with their sweet burst of flavor, we've got a hunch they're here to stay.
Our meals are packed with natural, good-for-you ingredients and nothing artificial, ever.
