Roast Pumpkin Risotto

    55 minutes

    This is a great recipe if you have leftover roast pumpkin or you can roast it specifically for the recipe. Be gentle stirring it in otherwise it can easily break up.

    1. Skin, seed and cube the pumpkin. Roast in an oven at 200 degrees C until cooked; about 25 minutes.
