1

Pre heat oven to 220C.

2

Place all the pumpkin on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

3

Drizzle the olive oil and season the pumpkin – toss to ensure the oil is coating it evenly.

In a fry pan heat the butter on a medium heat.

9

Cook and stir for 1 minute before adding the rice, and continue to stir to ensure all ingredients are combined.

10

Pour some of the broth (1/2 cup at a time) and stir.

11

Repeat the previous step until you reach desired consistency – rice will take 30 minutes to cook.

Add the pumpkin and continue to cook on a low heat until the pumpkin is warmed through.
