Ingredients

  • Ingredients

  • 6-8

    cups chicken broth (use vegetable broth for vegetarian option, and gluten-free stock for gluten-free version)

  • 5

    Tbsp unsalted butter, divided into 4 Tbsp and 1 Tbsp

  • 1

    small onion, finely chopped

  • 2

    cups butternut squash, peeled, and finely diced

  • 2

    cups arborio rice (can substitute medium grained white rice, but arborio is preferred)

  • 1

    cup dry white wine (such as Sauvignon Blanc)

  • 1

    cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2

    Tbsp chopped chives or garlic chives

  • Salt

Directions

Method 1 Heat broth in medium sized saucepan and keep warm over low heat. Melt 4 Tbsp of butter in a large saucepan; add onion and butternut squash. Cook over medium heat until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. 2 Add rice to onion and squash. Cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add wine. Cook, stirring constantly until wine has been absorbed by the rice or evaporated. Add a few ladles of broth, just enough to barely cover rice. Cook over medium heat until broth has been absorbed. Continue cooking and stirring rice, adding a little bit of broth at a time, cooking and stirring until it is absorbed, until the rice is tender, but still firm to the bite, about 15 to 20 minutes. 3 During the last minutes of cooking, add remaining tablespoon of butter, 1/3 cup Parmesan, and chives. At this point the rice should have a creamy consistency. Add salt to taste. Serve with remaining grated Parmesan and Romano.
