Beet and Beet Green Risotto

After a day biking around DC and swimming/lounging at the East Potomac Park Bathhouse (sounds fancier than it is, but it's actually quite a nice pool!), we were ravenous. I recently acquired from the CSA a bunch of beets with greens still intact, so Amy and Chrissy both recommended the beet risotto from the NYTimes. Turns out we had all the ingredients, so we made it happen. Really good! Beautiful color. I would have added some feta or something cheesier to it, but it was pretty lovely as is, too, if feta's not your thang.
