Christine in Virginia

"I had pumpkin risotto as a side dish at a local restaurant. It was delicious, so I inquired about its ingredients and preparation and was able to devise my own recipe based on the hints from the restaurant."

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute sweet onion in melted butter until soft and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes; add rice and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 2 minutes more.
  2. Pour Sauvignon Blanc over the rice mixture; cook, stirring frequently, until the rice has absorbed the wine, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Stir 1 cup chicken broth into the rice mixture; cook, stirring frequently, until the broth is absorbed, 5 to 7 minutes. Continue with remaining broth, 1 cup at a time.
  4. Remove saucepan from heat to add pumpkin puree, Gruyere cheese, Parmesan cheese, nutmeg, and cayenne pepper into the rice mixture, stirring until the cheese is melted and the mixture is smooth.

This was absolutely delicious!!! The broth to rice ratio was way to much I ended up using 2 1/2 cups and probably should of just used two. Great rissoto recipe.
