  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Brush a baking dish with olive oil.
  2. Place pumpkin in a steamer over 1 inch of boiling water, and cover. Cook until tender but still firm. Transfer pumpkin to baking dish, and brush with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a saucepan. Cook onion and garlic until tender. Stir in rice, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Slowly add vegetable broth 1/2 cup at a time, stirring frequently and allowing all the liquid to be absorbed before adding more broth. Continue cooking until the rice is tender to the tooth, and then season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. When the pumpkin is almost done, place feta on a baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven until the cheese is hot, and is beginning to melt along the edges.
  5. Mash 1/2 of the pumpkin, and stir into the risotto with the spinach. Ladle risotto into bowls, and top with remaining pumpkin cubes and heated feta.

Wow! This was absolutely delicious and so beautiful to present as well. (I served it in a pumpkin half I had hollowed out). It was a very unexpected combination. I added sauteed red bell peppers...

I gave this recipe full rating, because I believe in it, but I had a horrible time. It was my first risotto, plus I doubled the recipe for 8. I couldn't find fresh pumpkin, so I used butternut ...

Mmmm, the pumpkin in this is so delicious despite the hassle it is to cut up (wonder if it's sold frozen?) I also did not bother to peel it. I would suggest using 6 cups broth since my rice wa...

We loved this recipe! The sweetness of the pumpkin mixed with the tanginess of the feta are a wonderful combination. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. Also, it was the wrong tim...

Superb!! So smooth and creamy yet without any cheese in the risotto!! I added a whole clove of fresh garlic. Will definately make again!

This recipe was delicious! I used chicken broth instead of vegetable, and used 6 cups instead of 4. The fresh pumpkin was kind of a pain to work with, but worth it!!

Very good flavor and presentation too. The mashed pumpkin added to the rice makes the dish. I tasted it before adding the pumpkin and it was kind of bland, but afterwards, what a difference!
