It’s Fall! Why do pumpkins get all the attention. The checker at the market gave me the last butternut squash at the store for $0.69…flirting with me? With that price, I suspect he was. Must have been the new hair.
So I basically Just bought a box of Arborio Rice at Trader Joe’s and followed the direction on the box with a few deviations. Here we go!
1 box (17.6 oz) Arborio Rice
1-2 Tablespoons oil or non dairy butter
1 yellow onion chopped
1 cup butternut squash puree (cut in half, seed and gut, rub with oil, salt and pepper, bake at 400 cut side down for like 40 minutes or until soft all the way through)
1 cup water
4 + cups broth
1.5 teaspoons salt
2 Tablespoons fresh sage chopped
pepper to taste
Heat oil in a large sauce pan and add onions until golden. Then add rice and cook until translucent
Add one cup of water and cook until absorbed. String frequently
Blend broth and squash together and add one cup at a time letting each cup absorbs before adding the next.
Add salt and sage with the third addition of liquid.
Add pepper to taste
CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP!
