With a few simple ingredients, you can make this epic meal that will impress your friends and make you feel like the next Jamie Oliver.

pumpkin and sage risotto

Ingredients

  • 800g pumpkin that has been peeled, seeded and cut into small chunks.
  • 750ml water
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh sage
  • 250g Arborio rice
  • 160ml white wine
  • 75g baby spinach leaves
  • 45g toasted pine nuts
  • 50g crumbled feta cheese
  • 20g parmesan cheese

Method

  1. Preheat the mega kitchen oven to 200 degrees celcius. Spread the pumpkin chunks on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil and season with pepper. Roast for 25 minutes in the oven.
  2. While the pumpkin is roasting, place water and the vegetable stock in a saucepan and bring to the boil over a high heat. Once the stock is boiling, reduce the heat and let the stock gently simmer.
  3. Heat some more olive oil in the pan and stir in the chopped onion until it is soft, this should take about 5 minutes. Add in the crushed garlic and chopped sage and stir for one minute, or until you can smell the ingredients.
  4. Add in rice and stir until they are coated in olive oil and have a shine to them. This should take about one minute.  Add in the wine and stir the ingredients until the liquid has reduced by half.
  5. Add 125ml of vegetable stock to the rice and stir the mixture until the liquid has soaked in to the rice. Repeat this process until you have no liquid left. This should take about 20 minutes and the rice should be tender and the risotto creamy.
  6. Add in the pumpkin, stir in the spinach, pine nuts and feta and serve with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese.

Top Tip: If you don’t want to include wine, replace the wine with more vegetable stock.
