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.
