Pumpkin Cream Risotto

Yes, this is another pumpkin recipe! I wanted to shave a savory pumpkin recipe that I came up with last week. Seems like all I’ve been sharing lately is the dessert pumpkin recipes, so we need to mix it up a bit.
I love, love, love risotto and mixing it with pumpkin is just heavenly! I was a little bit concerned with how this would turn out because the butternut squash risotto was “not bad” not great, but not bad. This on the other hand, was so good that I found myself chewing very slowly as to savor every bite! As an added bonus, my little man loved it so much. 

1 cup of Arborio Rice
1/2 cup chopped shallots
1/2 cup shredded carrots
3 tbs olive oil
1/2 cup white wine
3 cups of vegetable stock
1/2 cup +1 tbs heavy cream
1 cup of cooked pumpkin
1/2 tsp nutmeg
salt, pepper

1. In a deep large skillet, heat up the olive oil
2. Add the shallots and carrots, saute for 2-3 minutes

3. Add the Arborio rice and saute for a couple of minutes

4. Add the white wine and 1 cup of stock. Cook, stirring often until liquid is absorbed

5. Add 1/2 cup of stock and 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Cook, stirring often until liquid is absorbed.

6. Keep adding the stock and heavy cream portions until rice is completely cooked.

7. When rice is just about done, add the pumpkin, salt, pepper and nutmeg and finish cooking the rice.

***If you ran out of liquids and rice is not done yet, add 1/4 cup of stock at a time until rice is done!
