Recipe Ingredients for Roast Butternut Squash Risotto

300 g butternut squash
2 tbsp olive oil
10 cloves garlic
15 g unsalted butter
275 g Arborio Rice
1 pinch saffron
150 ml dry white wine
1000 g vegetable stock
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
1 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
50 g Parmesan cheese
1 pinch salt
1 pinch black pepper

Recipe Directions for Roast Butternut Squash Risotto

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375/Gas Mark 5. Cut the squash in half, peel, then scoop out the seeds and discard. Cut the flesh into 2cm/ inch cubes.

  2. Pour the oil into a large roasting tin and heat in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Add the butternut squash and unpeeled garlic cloves. Turn in the oil to coat, then roast in the oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and very tender, turning the vegetables after 15 minutes.

  3. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the rice and stir over a high heat for a few seconds. Add the saffron and the wine, and bubble fiercely until almost totally reduced, stirring frequently. At the same time heat the stock in a second pan and keep at a steady simmer.

  4. Reduce the heat under the rice to low. Add a ladlefull of stock and simmer, stirring, til absorbed. Continue adding stock in this way until the rice is tender. This will take about 20 minutes and it may not be necessary to add all the stock. Turn off the heat, stir in the herbs, parmesan cheese, and seasoning. Cover and leave to stand for 2-3 minutes. Remove the skins from the roasted garlic cloves. Add to the risotto with the squash and mix gently. Garnish with sprigs of oregano and serve immediately with Parmesan.
