1. To make the pumpkin risotto: Combine 1 tablespoon salt and 5 cups water in a medium stockpot. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.

2. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook chopped onion and a pinch of salt until the onion is translucent and starting to soften for 4-6 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of water and cook, stirring regularly, until water evaporates and the onion is sizzling in oil and completely soft, about 5 minutes.

3. Add rice to the onion and stir well to coat with oil. Stir fry the rice, stirring constantly until grains of rice are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add wine and another pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until wine is completely evaporated, about 2 minutes.

4. Reduce the heat to medium, then add hot salted water to rice in 1/2-cup increments, along with pumpkin puree, stirring constantly and allowing liquid to absorb fully before adding more water and pumpkin puree until rice is al dente and surrounded by fluid, not-too-thick creamy suspension, 15–20 minutes. The rice should be tender but not mushy. Do not overcook.

5. Remove the pumpkin risotto from the heat, add butter, and stir until melted. Gradually add Parmesan, stirring until the cheese is melted. Stir in more hot salted water if needed to achieve the right consistency. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Top with chopped dill and almonds.

6. Divide the pumpkin risotto into bowls or shallow plates and top with more almonds and dill. Serve the pumpkin risotto immediately. Enjoy! ❤️

Tips for the pumpkin risotto recipe

Make sure to use pumpkin puree, and not pumpkin spice pie filling, because pumpkin pie spice filling has a lot of additives to it and is a totally different product.

How to keep the pumpkin risotto leftovers?

Keep any pumpkin risotto leftover in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently in a saucepan or the microwave.
