Fall is pumpkin time, but it doesn't stop at pumpkin soup and pumpkin spice lattes.

Enjoy this pumpkin risotto that simmers in just 20 minutes.

Orange pumpkins have been shining on the side of the road and in the garden beds for a few weeks now and now the weather is playing along and we are in the mood for many hearty and sweet pumpkin dishes again.

Pumpkin soup and pumpkin pie are sure to be on the regular list, but the range shouldn’t end there, because there’s so much more.

For example, try creamy pumpkin risotto, a recipe that keeps memories of summer holidays in Italy alive even on cold autumn days.

Quick Pumpkin Risotto: You need these simple ingredients

  • 250 g Hokkaido pumpkin, unpeeled

  • 1 onion

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • 125 g risotto rice, eg Carnaroli

  • 100 ml white wine

  • 300 ml water, hot

  • 1 pinch of cumin

  • 1 cube vegetable broth

  • 25 grams of butter

  • 1 pinch of pepper

  • 100 g Parmesan (this keeps it for months)

  • optional: a handful of roasted pumpkin seeds and pumpkin seed oil

Quick tip for pumpkin recipes

If you want to save yourself time and effort, use Hokkaido squash whenever possible in pumpkin recipes.

This has a very thin shell that you can safely leave on and cook with.

It gives the dish extra color and flavor.

How to prepare the quick pumpkin risotto in 35 minutes

  • Cut the Hokkaido pumpkin into thin wedges and chop them as finely as possible.

    You can also use a blender to help.

    Then chop only briefly, so that no porridge is formed.

    The smaller the pieces, the faster the risotto will be ready.

  • Peel and finely chop the onion as well.

  • Heat olive oil in a saucepan and briefly sweat the risotto rice in it.

    Then add the pumpkin and onion and sauté as well.

  • Dissolve the bouillon cube in the hot water.

  • Deglaze the rice with white wine, then pour in the vegetable stock and season with cumin.

  • Give it a good stir and then simmer for about 20 minutes on a medium to low heat and in an uncovered pan, until the consistency is nice and creamy and the rice is soft.

  • Then just stir in 25 g of butter in pieces and 50 g of Parmesan.
