La Petite Peach_Stacey Hedman Risotto 4.2

This is one of my all time favorite recipes for the family. It’s fresh and healthy but the kiddos love it because the risotto looks “cheesy” .  It’s the perfect fall dish! See the full recipe below, and thank you to Stacey from Stacey Hedman Photography for shooting this for me, and helping W and I eat it up!

Butternut Squash Risotto

1 cup of pureed butternut squash (I roast then puree my own but you can buy frozen too)

3 cups of vegetable broth

1 cup of risotto

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 an onion chopped

3 garlic cloves

1/4 cup of dry white wine

1 teaspoon of salt and pepper

a dash of nutmeg and ground cinnamon

6-8 sage leaves finely chopped

optional: 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese

1. In a small sauce pan combine the broth and squash puree until it comes to a boil then turn heat to a low simmer

2. Meanwhile in another larger pot, add olive oil, risotto, onion, garlic, sage leaves, nutmeg/cinnamon and  1/2 of the salt and pepper and cook on low heat until the oil is soaked up by the risotto 3-4 minutes. Add the wine and simmer for 2 minutes.

3. Slowly ladle in the broth and squash mixture one ladle at a time and not adding more until the previous has been completely soaked up by the risotto 20-25 minutes.

4. Add Parmesan (optional) and remaining salt and pepper to season

ENJOY!
