butternut squash and goat's cheese risotto.


Risottos, biryanis, arancini, sushi and paella... delicious dinner ideas all with the same ingredient. Rice! An Autumnal inspired dish, I've paired the earthy flavours of roast butternut squash with sweet red peppers, creamy goat's cheese and peppery rocket to create a comforting risotto recipe.


Shopping list.
(Serves two, generously)
♥ One small butternut squash, seeds removed and cubed
♥ One red pepper, seeds and stalk removed and finely sliced
♥ Olive oil
♥ Vegetable stock cube
♥ Two garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
♥ 150g arborio or carnaroli risotto rice
♥ 100g goat's cheese
♥ 10g pine nuts, toasted for 2-3 minutes
♥ Salt and pepper to season
♥ Fresh rocket
♥ Parmesan to serve (ensure it is vegetarian for veggie diners)

Equipment; baking tray, blender, large pan, garlic press optional

Step one. Begin by roasting your cubed butternut squash and red pepper with a dash of olive oil. Roast for around 30 minutes until softened - although the red pepper may be ready sooner.

Step two. Set aside the red pepper for later and cut up a few tiny cubes of squash. With the rest of the squash, blend until smooth.

Step three. Make the stock with around 150ml of boiling water. Add to the butternut squash and blitz together. This also helps get all the excess bits of squash out of the blender.

Step four. Begin your risotto by cooking the crushed garlic on a low heat for a couple of minutes. Be careful not to burn. Add in the risotto rice and lightly toast for around one minute before adding in a little stock.

Step five. Continue to cook on a low heat, adding the butternut squash stock gradually as it soaks up. Do this for around 20 minutes until the risotto rice is almost cooked.

Step six. Stir through the goat's cheese and red pepper five minutes before the end. Keep a little goat's cheese aside to crumble on at the end. Season to taste.

Step seven. Serve immediately with scatterings of butternut squash cubes, pine nuts, crumbled cheese and a small handful of rocket. Of course with extra lashings of parmesan and black pepper!

  2. WOW! This came out so delicious! I do the same thing, taking inspiration from a recipe and then changing it up. I had some left over roasted sweet potatoes so I just carmelized onions, browned the turkey in a pan, added some other vegetables, red thai chili paste, and a bit of lemongrass (along with everything you put in the recipe) and it came out amazingly delicious! My fiance was shocked because I put it together rather quickly and it was so yummy .

  18. This recipe for Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Risotto is a simple and delicious dish made with Arborio rice, peeled and diced butternut squash, finely chopped onion, minced garlic, 4 cups of vegetable or chicken broth, 1/2 cup dry white wine (optional), crumbled goat cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, unsalted butter, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper, and fresh sage leaves for garnish. To prepare the squash, peel and dice it, roast it in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for 20-25 minutes, and then make the risotto by heating 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Add the onion, minced garlic, and Arborio rice, cook for 1-2 minutes until lightly toasted. If using white wine, pour it into the rice and stir until mostly absorbed. Add broth, one ladle at a time, stirring frequently. Once the rice is halfway cooked, fold in the roasted butternut squash cubes and continue adding broth and stirring. Cook until the rice is creamy and cooked to al dente, which usually takes 18-20 minutes. Add crumbled goat cheese, Parmesan cheese, and the remaining butter, season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the risotto on plates or bowls and garnish with fresh sage leaves if desired.abogado de planificación patrimonial
