The creamiest Risotto ever!

I couldn’t resist and just had to make another pumpkin recipe. This orange veggie full of vitamin A is just so delicious and you can make a variety of amazing recipes with it. I realised I hadn’t done a Risotto yet, which is a typical comfort food i absolutely love when it’s cold outside.

This pumpkin Risotto is beyond creamy and delicious. The pumpkin puree just makes is extra creamy and I  love those additional chunks of pumpkin with fresh herbs on top. If you can eat Parmesan, this is a perfect opportunity to add it on top. For all with histmineintolerance like myself enjoy it without but trust me you won’t miss is. This creamy pumpkin Risotto is heavenly on it’s own!

Stay warm lovelies and enjoy!
