Pumpkin risotto


  • Heat the stock well, without letting it boil.
  • For the risotto, place a tall and narrow pot over medium heat.
  • Add the olive oil, 50 g butter, onions, celery, and sauté them lightly. You do not want the onion to turn golden, just to soften and become translucent.
  • After 8 minutes add the garlic, sauté for less than 1 minute, and then add the rice.
  • Sauté by mixing it often, but not all the time. You want its grains to remain unbroken.
  • Deglaze the pot with the wine, and after it evaporates, start pouring the stock slowly with a ladle. You will need at least 20 minutes for this process; that is to “feed” the rice with the stock so that it softens and it gives off its starch.
  • Finally, when the risotto is almost ready, add the pumpkin puree into the pot, mix, remove from the heat, and add the extra 50 g butter, half of the Roquefort (or blue cheese), salt and pepper (carefully with the salt since not only the stock but also the cheese are pretty savory).
  • Let the butter and cheese melt, mix, and serve instantly along with the remaining cheese crumbled into pieces, and the walnuts coarsely chopped.
  • For more flavor, you can sauté the walnuts a little.

Serve with fried rosemary, which you can make as follows:

  • In a frying pan over medium heat, add sunflower oil that is 3 cm deep, and let it get hot.
  • Add the rosemary sprigs and press them with a slotted spoon so that they sink into the oil for about 10 seconds, until the leaves become translucent and hard.  
  • Remove them and place them onto some paper towel to drain.
  • Serve 1 sprig onto each dish and, if you want, finely chop some fresh rosemary on top as well.
