Ingredients

Vegetable stock:

Materials

  • 2 frying pans
  • 1 knife
  • 1 cutting board
  • 1 wooden spoon
  • 1 saucepan

Preparation

  • Step 1 - Colorful and delicate Pumpkin risotto
    First prepare the vegetable stock with your favourite vegetables (you can also use stock cube). Peel the pumpkin and cut it into slices, then dice. Peel the onion and chop it finely.
  • Step 2 - Colorful and delicate Pumpkin risotto
    Add olive oil and onion to a frying pan and fry for about 4 minutes (stir occasionally to avoid burning). Then place the pumpkin in it and brown it. Cook it for about 20 minutes, adding a ladle of stock as often as needed.
  • Step 3 - Colorful and delicate Pumpkin risotto
    In another pan toast the rice, stirring often for 2 to 3 minutes. Deglaze with white wine and stir frequently as the rice may stick to the pan. When the wine has evaporated, add the rice to the pan with the pumpkin. Mix the ingredients well so that the rice does not stick.
  • Step 4 - Colorful and delicate Pumpkin risotto
    Add one ladle of broth at a time until the rice is cooked. Stir frequently. This will take 15 to 20 minutes cooking, depending on the rice you have decided to use. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Step 5 - Colorful and delicate Pumpkin risotto
    When the rice is cooked, take the pan off the heat and start creaming by adding grated Parmesan cheese and butter.
  • Step 6 - Colorful and delicate Pumpkin risotto
    Stir gently and let it rest for a minute before serving.
  • Step 7 - Colorful and delicate Pumpkin risotto
    Pumpkin risotto is ready!
