How To Make Pumpkin Risotto
Step 1: We begin the preparation of our pumpkin risotto, for this, in a pot at medium temperature and with a little olive oil, add the onion and let it cook for 5 minutes, then add the pumpkin and let it cook for a couple of minutes, then add 250 ml. of vegetable broth and let it cook until almost no broth remains, add 250 ml. more broth and let it cook again until it is consumed and until the pumpkin is soft (about 20 minutes).
Step 2: With the help of a potato masher or a fork, we are going to mash the pumpkin a little (it is not necessary to mash it all, we will leave some whole pieces) we continue cooking over very low heat.
Step 3: On the other hand, in a frying pan at medium high temperature, we will place our rice and let it toast for a couple of minutes, then add the white wine, stir and when we see that all the alcohol has evaporated, remove from heat and pour the rice into the pot where we have the pumpkin, stir and cook for a minute.
Step 4: We add only a part of the liter of broth that we have left (until almost covering the rice and we reserve the rest) and we begin to stir, we let cook until there is almost no broth left, then we add again a little more broth and we continue cooking, stirring from time to time so that the rice releases all its starch and gives us creaminess, finally we add the remaining broth and continue cooking until it is consumed, stirring from time to time (the total cooking time is between 15 and 20 minutes, adding the broth between 3 and 4 parts or when we see that it has been consumed).
Step 5: Finally add salt, pepper, stir and remove from heat, add the butter and stir well, then add the parmesan cheese and mix! Let it rest for a few minutes, serve and we have our delicious pumpkin risotto ready!
