Pumpkin Risotto with Caramelized Onions and Candied Walnuts
This recipe is a bit labor-intensive, but so worth it for a really special meal or to satisfy that craving for savory fall fare. This creamy pumpkin risotto is a very comforting dish on a cold night! Just add a protein to make it a meal! I recommend tofu, pork, or chicken.
