  • Love this recipe!! I halved

    Submitted by wishbear72 on 20. October 2015 - 18:26.

    Love this recipe!! I halved the recipe to serve 2 (easily served myself, hubby, daughter and 1 serve of left overs) It did take an extra 10 minutes longer for my rice to cook. I did not add any bacon and was unsure on which stock to use. I ended up using beef powdered stock.

    all in all, big thumbs up!! Very yummy tmrc_emoticons.)

    Made this on the weekend and it was a hit in our family. Did not use any wine but substituted with extra stock. The roasted pumpkin and feta was delicious. Will definately make again!

  • Love it.  Added some baby

    Submitted by Expl0rergirl on 12. January 2015 - 15:42.

    Love it.  Added some baby spinach leaves and halved the stock, pureed some for my infant and then added feta.  Lovely and healthy!  Also only used 30g olive oil and omitted bacon.  Thanks for the great recipe.

  • Very nice!   Didn't really

    Submitted by Susemb on 18. November 2014 - 20:25.

    Very nice!

     

    Didn't really change anything, was a bit watery and let it sit longer in the Thermoserver to help with that.

    Used about 100g of baby spinach into the bottom of the thermoserver, the mashed pumpkin and about half the feta and cubed pumpkin onto that, then the slurry risotto the remaining cheese and pumpkin and let it sit for a bit before a good stir. 

    The teenager had to add some parmesan, but for me it was just fine!

  • i made this last night and

    Submitted by healthy_bree on 27. October 2014 - 11:17.

    i made this last night and firstly  I would not "turbo" the bacon unless u want a bacon paste through ure risotto. Perhaps chop on sp 7 for a few seconds and then check. Also it may seem like a lot of liquid but let it sit for 5 minutes and it will thicken up . i made the mistake of cooking for an extra 5 mins but def didn't need it. I Cooked for 25 mins all up. 

    And yes it makes a lot, which is great.. I love cooking in large quantities so this recipe was good for that. 

    If I make again I will make a few adjustments but overall a nice recipe.

    Submitted by The Naked Mummy on 17. June 2014 - 12:29.

    Absolutely delicious.  My only complaint is that there was soooooooo much!!!!! I could only put 600 grams of water in as 800 grams would have caused a mass overflow.

  • Delish! I followed all

    Submitted by Jade-o on 11. June 2014 - 22:13.

    Delish! I followed all ingredient quantities but needed longer cooking time (extra 15min). I took MC off for last 5min to help it reduce quicker and turned the temp up to varoma setting. Great tasting risotto!

    I made this tonight and it's delicious!!!   Love

    it made an absolute d**k load though! I wasnt able to add the full 800g of water as it would have gone over max line. i think I put in 600-700g, just to the max line anyway. Still came out perfectly tmrc_emoticons.) I also stirred through some semi dried tomatoes at the end as well. 

    Will definitely make again! tmrc_emoticons.)

  • I just wanted you to know

    Submitted by mrsbobby on 13. February 2014 - 09:53.

    I just wanted you to know that this is the very first dish I made in the Thermomix last night after delivery - it was great.  Very tasty.  I put a bit more wine and a bit less water, but an easy recipe to follow.  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Great risotto! I didn't have

    Submitted by thermojeanie on 10. January 2014 - 21:19.

    Great risotto! I didn't have quite enough pumpkin so I used some sweet potato & beetroot & it was delicious. Otherwise I followed the rest of the recipe to the letter. Thanks for sharing.

  • My goodness!! Making this

    Submitted by MummaLivingston on 20. July 2013 - 19:48.

    My goodness!! Making this tonight was my first attempt at Risotto. Yum. I didn't add the Feta as my husband is not a fan.  I just sprinkled some shaved parmesan upon serving.  Delicious dish.  Thank you. I found the quantity to be enormous... does Risotto freeze well?
