Ingredients

1 large brown onion - chopped
2 tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves - chopped
½ pumpkin – trimmed, skin removed and roughly chopped
3 tbsp olive oil
1 l veg stock
300 g arborio rice
1 tsp sage
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp parsley
¼ bunch fresh parsley – roughly chopped (optional garnish)
Sea salt
Black pepper

Method

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.

4

Place in the oven and reduce the heat to 190C. Cook for 35-40 minutes or until cooked through and golden.

5

Remove from heat and set aside.

6

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

7

Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 3-4 minutes or until softened

8

Add the herbs and stir (add more butter if necessary).

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.

12

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

13

Remove from the heat. Season and add parsley (optional).
