I think risotto is a nice comfort food, but served nicely it’s also quite a nice meal to serve for a dinner party (or Xmas?!). Last year for Christmas I actually served fried risotto balls, what was a huge success. This risotto recipe is very simple, but oh so delicious as it includes butternut squash from the oven, so yummy! The nutritional yeast will give a little cheesy flavour to the risotto, what goes so well with the squash. I can personally eat this every day, haha.. it’s super easy and doesn’t need lots of preparation, whilst you’re creating a super tasty meal. Please let me know if you decide to give this a go!
2 cups risotto (cooked)
500 ml veggie stock
6 rings butternut squash (1/2 cm thick)
1/2 onion (sliced)
8 mini portobello mushrooms (chopped)
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
2 tbsp olive oil
pepper/salt (to taste)
8 basil leafs
-Preheat the oven at 200C.
-Cook the risotto in the vegetable stock and keep adding the stock bit by bit until the risotto is done.
-Mix the nutritional yeast into the risotto, together with a little extra pepper if you’re into that.
-In the meantime mix the olive oil with the garlic and some pepper/salt.
-Put the squash, the onion and the portobello mushrooms in an oven dish and gently rub on the olive oil mixture until everything is nicely covered.
-Put the vegetables in the oven for about 15-20 min.
-Serve the risotto and the vegetables with some fresh basil.
