Thermomix® Roasted Butternut Squash Risotto Recipe

This year I grew butternut squash in my garden for the first time. Between the slugs, the lack of sunlight and the fact that we’re moving soon, they’ve remained small, but perfectly butternut shaped. I’m quite pleased, actually!

Butternut Squash is perfect for this time of year – it’s light but filling, and can used in a variety of dishes.

Butternut Squash Risotto

Since we’re moving in a week, we’re trying to use up a lot of store cupboard supplies, and one of those is Risotto, so today I made this roasted butternut squash risotto for our lunch. It’s slightly different from my usual, in that I didn’t have wine or home made stock, but I was very pleased with how it worked out!

  1. Fantastic! Great recipe. I’ve been making variations on this for years, using rosemary instead of sage. Sage so much better, also put zest of a lemon and a finish of fresh lemon juice on mine.

    1. That sounds great Ruth! Fresh lemon is always a refreshing winner! Glad you liked the addition of sage!
