Butternut Squash Risotto
Enjoy the complex, sophisticated taste of seasonal risotto in the time it takes to cook simple pasta or rice with our Butternut Squash Flavor-Ready Risotto. We blend premium short grain Arborio rice with butternut squash and zesty, savory herbs, spices and aromatics to classic autumnal flavors available year round in elegant risotto.
Heat 1 quart water or chicken stock to simmer and reserve. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 cup Butternut Squash Risotto and stir quickly until rice is well coated and opaque, about 2 minutes. Add 1 cup warm liquid to rice. Cook, stirring, until rice has absorbed liquid. Add remaining liquid 1 cup at a time, cooking and stirring until rice absorbs all the liquid after each addition and rice is tender but firm.
