Risotto is associate risotto based mostly dish that's overdone with broth till it reaches a creamy consistency. usually it’s created with a special reasonably rice, arborio, that is starchy and short grained. Arborio rice isn’t terribly tough to seek out, I found it at my native market. typically dish incorporate butter and cheese, however my vegetarian version doesn’t have a trace of farm, and it’s even as comforting and delicious!

Risotto is that the excellent date-night meal, or for serving to company. The addition of cooked butternut squash is further tasty, and adds even additional flavor and thickness to the ultimate dish.

VEGAN RISOTTO WITH ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH

INGREDIENTS:
For the Roasted Butternut Squash:

  • 3 cups cubed small butternut squash
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Risotto:

  • 5 cups vegetable broth
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small sweet onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • salt, to taste
  • chopped parsley, optional
  • Optional: Vegan Parmesan

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Roast the butternut squash: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the cubed butternut squash. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, then bake for 20-30 minutes until tender and lightly browned. While the squash bakes, make the risotto on the stovetop.
  2. Warm the broth: Heat the vegetable broth in a large pot over medium-low heat until warm, but not boiling. This is for adding to the risotto, and it needs to be warm.
  3. Make the Risotto: In a large saute pan over medium heat, add the olive oil and warm. Now add the chopped onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, then add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the rice and stir to coat with the oil, sauteing for about 2 more minutes.
  4. Next, add the white wine and stir constantly until the wine is fully absorbed.
  5. Add 1/2 cup of the warm broth, and stir until absorbed. Continue adding 1/2 cup broth at a time, stirring frequently until absorbed each time, until all the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is al dente (tender, yet slightly chewy), about 20-30 minutes. The heat should be high enough that the rice/broth is bubbling soon after you add it, but not boiling too much or the liquid will absorb too quickly.
  6. Once all the liquid is absorbed, remove from heat and stir in the baby spinach and roasted butternut squash. Add salt to taste.
  7. To serve, garnish with chopped fresh parsley and/or Vegan Parmesan Cheese.
