Pumpkin Risotto

  • 1 pumpkin, skinned, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 shallots, roughly chopped
  • 200g risotto rice
  • 1 tbsp Herbamare® Bouillon, dissolved in a litre of boiling water
  • Black pepper, to season
  • Fresh coriander, roughly chopped, to garnish
  • Optional: grated parmesan, to garnish

How to make Pumpkin Risotto

1. Steam the pumpkin cubes for about 15 minutes, or until they are very tender and easy to mash.

2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan, and begin to cook the garlic and shallots. Once they are turning tender, add the risotto rice and stir for about a minute.

3. Add half of the Herbamare® Bouillon stock, and keep stirring until the liquid has been absorbed. Add the rest of Bouillon slowly, until all liquid has been absorbed, and the risotto rice is cooked and tender.

4. Mash the pumpkin until smooth, then fold it into the risotto. Season with black pepper, and garnish with coriander and parmesan.
