  • Toss butternut squash chunks lightly with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch of sea salt and white pepper. Spread on a roasting pan and bake in preheated oven until fork tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Combine Swanson® Unsalted Chicken Stock, orange juice, and rosemary in a saucepan. Bring to boil; reduce heat to low or a heat level that allows it to slowly simmer.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add onions and saute until the onion is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add Arborio rice and cook and stir until rice is coated and starting to toast, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Pour in 1 cup of the Swanson® Unsalted Chicken Stock/orange juice mixture and stir until liquid is absorbed into the rice.

  • Continue to add liquid 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until well absorbed before adding the next 1/2 cup until all the liquid has been added, about 30 minutes. Remove pan from heat; discard rosemary sprig. Stir in roasted butternut squash, butter, and dried cranberries. Season with salt and white pepper. Top with chopped pecans.

Cook's Note:

For a more potent orange kick, consider adding in a tablespoon of orange zest.

I finished this off with a sprinkle of feta cheese. I also included minced garlic with the onions and enhanced the broth and juice mixture with white wine. I also added a couple of drops each of wild orange and rosemary essential oils. I think this recipe is going to find its way to my thanksgiving or Christmas table this year. It would be a great leftover dish if you stir in some turkey to make it a main dish Read More

I made this dish just as the recipe states no changes. It was wonderful! The sweetness of the roasted butternut squash and the tartness of the dried cranberries was so delicious! I will be making this again! Read More

If you want to punch up the orange flavor add the zest of an orange right at the end. Enjoy. Read More

I really enjoyed this risotto. It is exceptionally easy (especially when you are lazy like I was and buy the pre-cubed squash). Putting the rosemary in the broth/OJ mixture created a lovely flavor that is not overpowering. I did opt to zest an orange and stir it in at the end to enhance the orange flavor. I didn't have pecans so I toasted walnuts it worked just fine. Otherwise everything was exactly as directed and delicious. I served this with the "Beer Butt Rosemary Chicken" also found on this site omitting the potatoes from that recipe - great meal with a veggie and green salad. Read More

A delicious recipe! I substituted dried apricots for cranberries because that s what I had on hand and added a little bit of chopped bacon as another reviewer suggested. I will definitely make this again. Read More

Very good. We added a bit of chicken and a touch of cream and called it a main dish. It was enjoyed by all even the kids. Read More
