    Submitted by suzanneallen on 6. August 2017 - 20:54.

    This was super tasty and so easy to make. I followed some of the other tips by adding mushrooms and more pumpkin. I reserved about 1/3 of the cooked pumpkin and stirred it through right at the very end as I found the pumpkin mashes through the risotto which gives it a lovely flavour but I like chunks of pumpkin in my risotto. Thanks for the recipe I will make this again

  • Hi RinnaSox...

    Submitted by Thermomix in Australia on 2. February 2017 - 13:02.

    Hi RinnaSox

    Step 6 says to add the ingredients to the mixing bowl. Then you secure the mixing bowl lid. Then place the simmering backet on top of the mixing bowl lid instead of the measuring cup. This allows for steam to escape, placing the simmering basket on top stops any splattering that may occur.

    Kind Regards
