Spinach risotto with roasted pumpkin + goats cheese

This winter has had me craving risotto! And, I love the flavour combination + textures of the elements in this dish.

So nourishing for the soul.

This recipe serves 3. Of course, you can double for guests.
ingredients

15-20 cubes of peeled 1.5cm pieces of pumpkin
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
organic butter
1/2 brown onion diced finely
2 garlic cloves diced finely
1 cup arborio rice
1 ltr organic vegetable stock
4-5 cubes frozen spinach
cracked black pepper
bunch of broccolini
handful of sage leaves
soft goat’s cheese or, creamy persian feta

grated parmesan


 

Preheat the oven to 180c.

Place the pumpkin cubes on a lined tray, drizzle with a little evoo, season with sea salt + roast until cooked. Set aside.

Bring the vegetable stock to a simmer in a pot.

Heat a large deep heavy based pan over a medium heat + add 1/2 tbsp of butter + a good drizzle of olive oil. Add the onion + garlic and cook for 5 minutes, or until softened.

Add the rice and stir to coat. Add the stock a ladle at a time (allowing it to absorb each ladle) + continue to stir until all the stock is in the pan.

Stir in the spinach (you don’t need to drain as the extra liquid is required), add a nob of butter and season. Continue to cook until the rice is tender with a little bite + oozy (al-dente).

Sauté the broccolini in a small frypan over a medium to high heat in a little evoo for 5 minutes (you want a nice, slightly crunch texture to it). Add the sage leaves in the last minute of cooking + fry until crispy.

Serve the risotto in bowls. Top with roasted pumpkin + broccolini. Add a generous dollop of goats cheese on top.

Scatter with sage leaves + grate parmesan all over.
