Creamy risotto with butternut squash and chestnut
10 min Prep, 45 min Cook
Melt the butter and the olive oil in a big casserole pan. Add all the vegetables and the spices and let them soften for about 10 minutes. Stir it frequently. (Until the onion goes glassy.) Lower the heat to the minimum.
Add the rice, keep stirring for a minute more and then add the wine. Let the wine cook off, then add the stock but only a ladleful at a time, allowing each ladleful to be absorbed before adding the next. Keep stirring all the time.
When the stock is gone, your rice will be still a bit hard, so add some more hot water until it's you reach the softness you wanted. Generally, around 25 minutes cooking and stirring we've got to do. (Don't add more stock, it will be otherwise overwhelmingly taste as stock. There's still a bit of salt and cheese to come.
When you're happy with the texture, add the cheese and the other spoonful of butter. Stirring butter into the ready risotto by the end of cooking will add the creaminess we're looking for. Serve it immediately with grated Parmesan on the top.
