Our 20 minute recipe
Heat the oven to 200C / fan 180C / gas 6.
Toss the butternut squash in a little oil and a pinch of salt on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 20 mins.
Mix 750ml of boiling water with the VEGETABLE STOCK in a jug. Keep aside.
Start the risotto
Heat a little oil in a pan over medium heat and fry the onion for 3 mins, until soft.
Then add the ROASTED GARLIC PASTE and mix well.
Add the rice and stir for 1 min, then sprinkle in the RISOTTO SPICE BLEND.
Ladle in the stock
Start to add the stock (2 ladles at a time), stirring often and cooking over a medium heat until the liquid has been absorbed each time before adding more. This should take around 15-20 mins.
Finish the risotto by stirring in the butter and most of the hard cheese. Then mix through the parsley and the oven-roasted butternut squash pieces.
Serve the risotto with more parmesan and some pine nuts on top (if having).

Very nice flavours with exactly the right amount of liquid for the rice! I roasted my butternut squash for extra yumminess. Would have given 5 stars but I had to season it quite a bit
Holly - Oct 14, 2019
Loved this, make sure you boil off all the liquids though!!

Not as great as expected
Jo - Sep 16, 2019
Brown sludge. Not sure what happened as all the other recipes are amazing x
Sue - Sep 16, 2019
Weird combination of flavours- creamy and cheesy but also spicy and sweet cinnamon taste. Not sure it worked but very tasty!
Laura - Sep 11, 2019
I thought the flavour was very strange and odd spice, didn't compliment anything in the dish. Interesting to try but would not order again. Gets 2 stars as my partner thought it was "alright".
Damian - Aug 19, 2019
Nor quite as light as it looks in the photo. More browny

Awful, didn't even look like the recipe photo and tasted worse than it looked!
Dominic - Mar 24, 2019
Added grilled Parma ham and was amazing!

Yummy. Except parmesan isn’t vegetarian ?
dionne - Jan 19, 2019
The flavour in this dish is simply amazing.
Lea - Nov 19, 2018
Great winter warmer, i put the extra squash cubes in the oven rather than fry to get them really crispy
Carina - Oct 12, 2018
Cinnamon is a bit too strong
Ian - Oct 08, 2018
Another brilliant meal, full of flavour. Really enjoyed this one
Lea - Sep 09, 2018

Liz - Aug 19, 2018

Really liked this dish! Did accidentally buy sweet potato and it actually worked really well!
Valerie - Apr 30, 2018
Mine didn’t look like the picture - more creamy. And it took longer than 15 mins to absorb the stick but I doubled the recipe. Tasted lovely!
Olivia - Apr 27, 2018
Too many spices
Karen - Apr 13, 2018
Karen - Mar 07, 2018
Not too keen on this. The light taste of the butternut squash doesn’t complement the rich taste of the rice.
Sabrina - Mar 06, 2018
My favourite recipe... the nuts on top is the best bit
Peter - Feb 09, 2018
Luca - Jan 21, 2018
Not bad although I am no fan of butternut squash.
Catherine - Nov 26, 2017
Only recipe I've ever had that I didn't like. Too much cinnamon, too much salt.
Jane - Oct 24, 2017
Lovely taste and the crunch from the pine nuts adds a texture, but very lacking in colour so I added some beans and spinach - yum!!!!
Bryn - Jun 24, 2017
20 minutes, my arse. More like an hour. Tastes good, but I'd rather pay someone to make that for me if it is going to take that long for the rice to cook.
Samantha - May 19, 2017
This was amazing! I wouldn't usually use these spices so it was very different for me. But I loved it! Some advice would be to add more vegetables to it though! I added some peppers and mushrooms to make it go further and add a bit more variety to each bite.
