- 2 cups Arborio rice
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 1 small butternut squash, diced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 2 tablespoons fresh sage leaves, chopped
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Toss the diced butternut squash with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and roast in the oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until tender and slightly caramelized. Set aside.
- In a large saucepan, heat the remaining olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute.
- Add the Arborio rice to the saucepan and stir to coat it with the onion and garlic mixture. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the rice becomes translucent around the edges.
- Pour in the dry white wine and stir until it’s mostly absorbed by the rice.
- Begin adding the vegetable broth, one ladleful at a time, stirring constantly and allowing each addition to be absorbed before adding more. Continue this process until the rice is creamy and cooked to your desired level of doneness, about 18-20 minutes.
- Stir in the roasted butternut squash and chopped sage leaves. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat through.
- Remove the risotto from heat and stir in the grated Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve the Satisfying Butternut Squash and Sage Risotto hot, garnished with extra sage leaves and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
