Looking for a simple pumpkin risotto recipe? This is a fantastic way to enjoy pumpkin when in season. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
You can bake or boil the pumpkin instead of steaming it. To bake, simply preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5, cut the pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds and pulp, then place cut side down in a baking dish with a couple of centimeters of water in the bottom. Bake until tender. Cool, scoop out flesh and mash.
added a few extras like mushrooms, seasoning pepper, a bit of hot pepper etc but it's a good basic recipe and I would definitely recomend! Yum! Instead of mashed pumpkin i used some leftover home-made pumpkin purée I had lying around. - 25 Oct 2011
