A vegetarian and vegan twist on classic Italian risotto – pumpkin! Why not? Pumpkin adds a sweet and unique flavor perfect for fall, as a vegetarian Thanksgiving entree, or anytime. If you have a gluten allergy, be sure to use certified gluten-free arborio rice to avoid any cross-contamination.
Sautee the onion in 1 tbsp. olive oil over medium heat for three to five minutes, or until soft. Add the rice. Allow to cook, stirring, for a minute or two. Slowly add the wine. Start to add the vegetable broth, 1/2 cup at a time. Allow the moisture to cook off before adding the next 1/2 cup. Stir frequently.
Add remaining ingredients, stirring well, and cook for just a few minutes, until heated through.
