Pumpkin Risotto

Impress your guests with a risotto infused with deep colour and rich flavour thanks to the addition of pumpkin. Round out the meal by serving it with another seasonal favourite: our apple and brie stuffed chicken breasts.

You’ll Need

  • 1 ½ Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ tsp dried sage
  • ½ tsp Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cooking pumpkin, peeled and cut into chunks (4 cups)
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 ½ cups Italian short grain rice (e.g. Arborio rice)
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Add broth to a small saucepan warm over medium heat.

    Saute onion and garlic in the pan and cook until soft.
  • 4
    Add the sage, salt and pepper, and rice.
  • 5

  • 6
    Once the wine has absorbed, add the pumpkin.

    Frittatas are one of my favourite ways to do eggs for dinner or for a late lunch on the weekend. I find them less fussy than omelets and easier than Quiche since there is no crust to deal with
