Guess what I’m cooking up? A creamy horseradish risotto with yes, maple brussel sprouts!!! 🙂
I had a dream about this dish believe it or not, so I found it to be my duty to re-create the same wonderful flavors for you. This risotto is AMAZING and simply gourmet. 😉
Horseradish Risotto (servings 3-4)
- 3 cups risotto
- 3/4 cup vegetable broth
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 2 tablespoons plain (prepared) horseradish
- 6 slices of Havarti cheese (chopped)
- 1 whole clove garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup fresh parmesan
- diced tomato – for garnish
Maple Brussel Sprouts
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups fresh baby brussel sprouts
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 4 tablespoons Grade A maple syrup
- 2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
Let’s begin shall we? First boil your brussl sprouts for 7-10 minutes. Remove. Using the same water add the risotto and cook through.
In a fry pan heat up 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the brussel sprouts and lightly salt.
Pour in the maple syrup and garlic. Cook on low for 5-7 min. Then add the wine cooking for another 3 minutes.
In the meantime, the risotto should be ready. Strain the risotto and put back into the pot. On med. low heat pour in the vegetable broth and white wine. Stir in the havarti cheese until nice and creamy. Add the horseradish, whole clove of raw garlic, parmesan cheese, and salt. Cook on low heat for another few minutes. Remove the garlic clove before serving.
Tip: if you feel like the risotto is drying out, add a little more vegetable broth.
For a fancy presentation, scoop the risotto in a measuring cup, then flip onto the center of the plate. Place the brussel sprouts around the risotto spooning some of the wonderful sweet broth over top of the dish. Carefully add a small pile of diced tomatoes on top of the risotto. Sprinkle them with some fleur de se (salt) and fresh grated parmesan. Serve.
The bite of the creamy horseradish risotto works wonders with the maple garlic brussel sprouts, to die for!!
I hope you enjoy this FABULOUS gourmet dish. I worked very hard on re-creating it for you.
