"I love this recipe - great flavours. For an extra oomph, roast the butternut squash at 200 degc for about half an hour or until just going crispy and then toss into the risotto. I'm also throwing in some chicken but don't tell the veggies...!"- dgromanis
Top-ranked recipe named "Butternut Squash Risotto"
Peel the squash and remove seeds. Cut into small 1/4 inch dice. Set aside. Heat the butter and oil together in a deep saucepan and saute the onions and garlic until soft but not browned. Add the squash and rice and continue to saute and stir for 2-3 minutes longer. Add wine and stir until absorbed. Add stock in 1/2 cup increments stirring until absorbed. Continue adding stock and stirring until rice is creamy on outside but has some texture to it. Gently stir in cheese, zest, nutmeg and correct seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve immediately in warm bowls garnished with chopped chives, additional Parmesan and a drizzle of fresh basil oil, if desired.

Brittjw 2 months agoThis recipe should say to cook the squash first, not sauté for 2-3 minutes with the rice. I ruined a whole pan of risotto and squash!

rachelpowell1 1 year agoI doubled this recipe and fed 9 people as a main dish. 5 children, 2 teens and 2 adults. My husband hates rice but actually thought this dish was very good.

Redtatt 1 year agoNothing short of delicious! Serving: 1? Surely not. The recipe would easily feed 4 hungry people.
lauraaguilarhouck 2 years agoGreat family dinner for whole family. My 10 month old shoveled this meal into his mouth. Make the whole recipe for a family of four and you can feed the family again with left overs. The basil olive oil is a great surprising touch!
