El Risotto is one of those Italian dishes that has many variations. From a black risotto, squid; Porcini mushrooms with Italian sausages, or tomatoes; it is a delight to the palate.
In this particular case, we want you to experiment with this recipe, a bit more delicate to taste than black risotto. And of course with the benefits of pumpkin to your nutrition.
1 small pumpkin
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
8 small onions
25 gramos de butter
200 grams of rice for risotto
2 teaspoons of ground cumin
1 liter of hot vegetable broth
50 grams of grated Parmesan cheese, you can alternatively use a vegan cheese
1 splash of white kitchen wine
Some finely chopped coriander.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Chop the squash or squash into 1,5 cm squares.
Save the seeds to toast them as snacks later.
Place the bark in organic waste or in your compost.
Put it on a cookie sheet, and drizzle over a little olive oil. Bake then for 30 minutes.
While the pumpkin is baked, you can make the risotto.
Put the garlic on a cutting board, and with the side of a knife, mash and remove the green streak from the middle.
Chop the onions into very fine pieces.
Heat a tablespoon of oil and the butter in the skillet over medium heat.
Add the onions and garlic.
Once the onion is soft without browning, add the rice and cumin. Stir well to coat in butter mixture for 1 min.
Add the broth and white wine little by little, stirring occasionally until it has disappeared into the rice. Personally, to give it a more intense pumpkin flavor, I add a few small squares to the broth to infuse all the rice with its flavor and color.
Verify that the rice is cooked to the point with a wooden or silicone spoon without stirring too much to prevent it from “crunching”, without drying it out. Remove from heat.
For me, the sweet spot is where the water goes down almost completely without completely disappearing. This way it is not dry, but slightly damp.
Once the rice is soft enough to eat, stir gently and add the grated Parmesan cheese, chopped cilantro, and roasted pumpkin.
