Butternut Squash and Mushroom Risotto

Ingredients:

1 ½ Cups Risotto Rice

2 Cups Butternut Squash, Peeled and Sliced

3 Cups Chicken Stock

1 Cup Sliced Mushrooms

2 Tablespoons Dried Onion 

1/3 Cup Butter

¼ Cup Vinegar

2 Tablespoons Dried Parsley

Salt and Pepper

Olive oil

Directions:

Place your butternut squash in a pot of boiling water until soft. Once soft, drain and set to the side.

In a pan drizzled with olive oil, place your rice and allow to cook on medium heat, constantly stirring for about two minutes. 

Add your chicken broth, onion, parsley, salt and pepper, vinegar, and butter to the pan. Stir and allow to simmer on low for about 20-25 minutes or until rice is soft. If your rice starts to get too sticky and still isn’t soft enough, add ½ a cup of chicken broth at a time until finished. 

Place your squash in a food processor and turn it into a puree. Add it to the pan along with your mushrooms. Stir and allow to simmer another 5-7 minutes. 

Remove from heat when mushrooms are tender and serve warm. Delish!
