Pumpkin is now in season and one of my favourite uses of pumpkin is to make risotto (traditional Italian rice dish). The pumpkin puree gives the pumpkin risotto a natural and beautiful golden yellow hue.

You can use your any variety of pumpkin for this recipe – my personal favourite is butternut squash (see ingredients’ photos on page two of the recipe) which I find easier to slice than other pumpkins, and it is very sweet!

    This is my type of autumn dinner ;-) Made some last year, but with brown rice..delicious too. Love yours more with risotto rice and pine nuts. Gorgeous colour.

    This looks so good.. But I have a few stupid qns to ask. Will the use of the dry white wine render this dish not suitable for preschoolers? What is considered as dry white wine? can I also ask where do u get pine nuts and sage leaves? I seldom cook western meals n don’t have most of the ingredients. :p

      Hi! you can skip the wine if you are concerned about alcohol content. You can buy pine nuts in the supermarket (it’s optional as it’s just garnishing). As for sage, I bought it from the fridge herbs section of NTUC/Cold Storage. You can also use dried sage (about 1-2 tsp) if you can’t find fresh ones, or even omit.

    How creamy this looks! I love how the pumpkin colour makes this so appealing as well- your lucky family!

    I’m having so much fun cooking with pumpkin and butternut squash right now, but I haven’t made a risotto lately. Pumpkin risotto sounds great!

    Looks totally YUMMY!!! :9

    You know, we love pine nuts here in Portugal, but they are pretty expensive @_@ I don’t quite remember how much they were in Singapore, but I’m positive they are so much cheaper there.

      Hi Pipana, good to see ya :) Pine nuts are expensive in SG too, in fact I was just contemplating to ship a big bag from US stores.

        Oh, I didn’t know pine nuts are expensive in Singapore too!
        In Portugal, we eat lots of pine nuts during Xmas season, so the price goes even higher X_x
