This Rich Gourd Rice Dish is Infused with Autumnal Flavors

In the spirit of fall is this decadent pumpkin risotto dish by Chocolate Covered Katie that offers a savory way to incorporate the popular fall gourd into cooking. The dish boasts a easy and simple cooking time making an ideal meal for any occasion.

While this is a pumpkin risotto, the recipe instructs that it can be made with either pumpkin or butternut squash if you so please. The gourd is incorporated into a sauce made from Parmesan, veggie broth, white wine, onion, olive oil and seasoning. As the cheese melts and the rice cooks the meal becomes a creamy medley that pairs well with the aromatic pumpkin. The pumpkin also lends a rustic orange hue to the dish that is unconventional and unique. Also if you happen to be dairy-free, you can use nutritional yeast instead of cheese.
