    Delicious!!!!! All my family loved this dish. I have three boys who are not always fans of risotto but they all commented how yummy it was and asked if we could have this risotto again. I didn’t have pumpkin so used sweet potatoe and added 50gm diced bacon. The chilli and turmeric added a beautiful flavour that wasn’t too hot. Will make this one again.

    Pumpkin risotto : perfect for a cold winter's night!

    Tip: I added bacon( fried with garlic and onion instead of leek) plus  a few small cubes of sweet potato. They kept their shape and added nice colour with some peas.Instead of tomatoes I used tomato puree.

    Submitted by shelleyawilson@icloud.com on 20. October 2015 - 20:22.

    Yum. I used real chicken stock instead of paste and water and blended the tomatos into the stock before adding. A squeeze of lemon peps it up a bit at the end.

  • Wow... My husband ate pumpkin

    Submitted by JudesStar77 on 27. March 2015 - 13:32.

    Wow... My husband ate pumpkin and said it was yummy. 10 stars for that... I make our risotto with brown rice (as white rice is on the "list of things you should never eat"... I just pop the rice in the basket for 20 mins and leave it draining until I need it again). In saying that: I think it could be possible to pop double the amount of rice in for the initial steam should you be needing to make 2 lots of risotto. I used chicken legs and stock (made in slow cooker from chicken bones, from a different meal... then turned my bones into more ckn stock). 1kg of ckn legs made enough ckn meat and stock for 2 risottos. I had a small leak so I added a eschallot.  Our bazil died compliments of cyclone marcia so I used dry and it was delish.

    Great recipe. So tasty. I didn't have leek so added half a green capsicum in place of it. I also only used 300g pumpkin and then added 100g carrot, plus I put an extra half a tablespoon of veggie stock in. It turned out delicious and my  husband and 15month old loved it too!

    The tomatoes didn't chop on speed 3 so I had to increase the speed. I used 2 tbsp of vege stock and no chilli or turmeric.

    Enjoyed by the kids and adults in the house  tmrc_emoticons.) I left out the tumeric and the tomatoes and used two tablespoons of stock, but the recipe was fantastic. Love the parmesan / basil blend stirred through, might use this for other dishes! Chicken was cooked perfectly. Texture was a bit mushier than I usually have risotto, but I think that might be a thermomix thing not a recipe thing.
