bacon, coconut rice, pumpkin, pumpkin risotto, risotto
pick meaty bacon
about 3 large shallots
dry white wine
chicken or vegetable stock
fresh cracked black pepper
Dice bacon into small pieces and slice shallots into thin slices.
Add all stock to a small pot and bring it to simmer. Lower heat to lowest setting to keep it warm while cooking the risotto. Season stock with salt and black pepper.
Heat up a large cooking pan over medium-high heat.
Add bacon to the pan and saute for a few minutes, mixing it often.
Add sliced shallots and saute bacon and shallots until nicely deep golden brown. Stir often to make sure it's cooked evenly. (This will take about 10 minutes, depending on thickness of bacon.)
Lower heat to medium.
Stir in Arborio rice and saute it with bacon and onions for a couple of minutes, stirring often.
Add wine and stir. Let rice absorb the wine as it cooks, stirring once in a while.
Once rice absorbs the liquid, add 1 cup of prepared stock. Stir and cook until rice absorbs the liquid.
Stir in pumpkin puree.
Add another cup of stock, stir and let rice cook until it absorbs the liquid.
Continue adding liquid a little bit at a time and letting rice absorb it until rice is cooked.
Take off heat and serve.
