Butternut Squash Risotto

Use the squash as the dish, it makes great presentation.

Recipe By: KitchenCIB (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/94)
Serves 2 Cook: 30 min

Ingredients

Butternut squash (medium) 1
Risotto rice for 1
Onion 1/2
Bacon rashers 2
Tinned tomatoes (chopped) 1
Chicken stock cube 1
White wine 100ml
Water 200ml
Cheddar cheese 1 tbsp
Parsley as you like

Method

1
Cut the squash in half lengthways. Deseed then microwave for 9-10 minutes.
2
Scoop out the flesh keeping some remaining inside the skin (this will make the 'dish' sturdier).
3
Put the olive oil in a pan and heat on medium. Add the finely chopped onion and roughly chopped bacon and fry.
4
When the onion is soft, add the unwashed rice and fry. Add the wine, water, tomatoes and stock cube and mix well.
5
Keep stirring on medium heat. When the rice is half cooked, add half the butternut squash. Add the grated cheddar cheese.
6
The risotto should be loose, so keep adding water as you cook the rice.
7
When the rice is almost cooked, add the remaning squash and season with salt & pepper.
8
Add the finely chopped parsley and scoop the risotto into the hollow squash skin. Sprinkle with more parsley before serving.

Tips & Note

●Butternut squash comes from the pumpkin family. Don't overcook or it will disappear. That's why it's better to add the last half just before turning the heat off.

It's similar to a Ratatouille in France, but the point is that caponata is sweet and sour with sugar and vinegar. It is best to put it on bread and eat it.

Asparagus. The earth is wonderful because such a delicious food grows here. But even if you want to make something with asparagus, recipes are limited. Asparagus goes great with pasta. It is surprisingly delicious.

Aubergine (eggplant) and miso are a match made in heaven. Cooking thick sliced of aubergine is a bit of hassle, but with a microwave, it's done in 3 minutes. All that's left is to stir fly it with the miso sauce. Translated by Chat GPT
