Autumn is always a great season to try new recipes that involve pumpkin. And what better way to warm up your heart and soul than with a comforting risotto? Today I want to share two amazing recipes that will leave you feeling satisfied and happy: Oven-baked risotto with pumpkin and sage and Baked Pumpkin Risotto with Canned Pumpkin.
Let’s start with the Oven-baked risotto with pumpkin and sage. This recipe is perfect if you want to impress your guests without spending hours in the kitchen. First, preheat your oven to 200°C. Then, in a large roasting pan, mix the arborio rice with chopped pumpkin, sage leaves, garlic, onion, and olive oil. Add chicken stock and white wine, and stir until everything is evenly combined.
Cover the roasting pan with aluminum foil and bake it for 45 minutes. After that, remove the foil and sprinkle grated parmesan cheese over the top of the risotto. Bake it for an additional 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden.
To serve, divide the risotto into bowls and top it with a few more sage leaves and some black pepper. The combination of pumpkin and sage is simply magnificent and the texture of the dish is creamy and satisfying.
Next up, is the Baked Pumpkin Risotto with Canned Pumpkin. This recipe is perfect if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to prepare a delicious meal. It’s also vegetarian-friendly, so you can share it with your meat-free friends.
First, preheat your oven to 190°C. In a saucepan, sauté diced onion and garlic in olive oil until they’re soft and translucent. Add canned pumpkin, vegetable broth, and arborio rice. Stir until they’re evenly combined.
Transfer the mixture to a baking dish and bake it for 30-35 minutes or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed. In the meantime, you can prepare a simple side salad with mixed greens and vinaigrette.
To serve, divide the risotto into bowls and top it with some grated parmesan cheese and black pepper. The canned pumpkin adds a sweet and earthy flavor to the dish, which is enhanced by the creaminess of the arborio rice.
