Sweet winter squash and earthy shiitake mushrooms are delicious in this creamy risotto.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This was really tasty. I would only suggest chopping the squash smaller or par-boiling it for 10 minutes before adding it, because it was just a tad undercooked when the rice was finally done. I am also in favor of adding more wine......

Loved this recipe

I roasted the squash first, which made it easier to cut and also allowed the sweet flavor of the squash to infuse the risotto.

I followed another reviewer's advice and cut ths squash into smaller cubes. I could't find shiitake, so I used small portabella, and fresh thyme, along with homemade chicken stock. Very tasty, very satisfying.

Delicious and creamy, not heavy

This was delicious. I added a little extra squash, as well as some vegan "ground beef". It was satisfying and made for a good dinner by itself.

I loved this

This recipe was so tasty! I have never cooked risotto or cooked with butternut squash but this recipe was easy. I cut the squash in 1/2" cubes and it came out perfectly. Otherwise, I followed the instructions exactly. The saffron added great flavor. I was surprised at how the flavor of butternut squash ran through the entire dish making it almost candied. I highly recommend.

My first risotto

I'm new to this, and I think I did everything right, and it was delicious. I doubled the rice portion and tripled the mushroom portion because I had a surplus of both. I feel like the squash doesn't add much to the recipe, but it's also my first time experimenting with butternut squash. I did what others recommended - I parboiled the squash, and I think it may have been better if I made much smaller cubes of the squash.

Easy and delicious
