Butternut squash risotto recipe

Butternut Squash Risotto is my back-pocket holiday recipe. Few people make it at home, so it is the perfect “wow” dish to serve to guests.

This Butternut Squash Risotto is made like any good risotto. The vegetables get sautéed and then the rice is added. Next we toast the rice for a minute in the oil to give it a nutty flavor that adds a nice touch to the finished dish. Then it is time to add the stock, in 1 cup increments, and stir continually as the rice absorbs the liquid – this is what makes the dish nice and creamy.
