SO good! I used sauteed summer squash instead of butternut and added some cooked chicken strips in the last addition of broth. It was great and a great next-day packed lunch too. Pros: Reheats well savory and delicious Cons: Takes forever to cook
Tasty and easy! I really loved this recipe. This was my first risotto recipe that I made it myself and I absolutely loved it. The risotto came out very flavorful and creamy - it did take time to cook up but recipe and ingredients are simple enough that I didnt' have to buy any extra herbs and seasoning that i might not use again. Great budget saver! Pros: healthy great lunch and dinner Cons: it's time consuming to cut up kuri kabocha
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.
This risotto was delicious & full of flavor. I ended up using an additional cup of stock just fyi. Although any risotto is a time consuming procedure it is definitely worth the efforts. And the best part is drinking the rest of the bottle of wine you didn't use in the recipe.
Came out great Followed the recipe with a few minor changes. I did listen to previous reviews and cut the squash up smaller. Cooked it for longer than 5 minutes just to make sure it would be cooked all the way by the end. Used baby bella mushrooms instead. Even though it's not eating well I added two tablespoons of butter when I added the cheese at the end. Pros: Budget friendly
My sister sent me the recipe over Facebook. She's been buying the squash pre-chopped I bought a whole squash and she told me that I have to bake it before chopping. That should be specified in the instructions because it's taking a while for them to soften up and it was extremely hard to cut even with miracle-blade knives.
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. Pros: delicious Cons: time consuming
