I just read that It is possible to make risotto in a dutch oven! Wow, talk about much simpler and less hands on time.
Until I experiment with that... here's a risotto recipe cooked the traditional way... 30 minutes of standing over the pot adding broth a little bit at a time while stirring continuously...
Time consuming, but delicious and worth every minute.
I am O-bsessed with acorn squash, but you can use butternut squash instead. Butternut squash can be found in stores pre-cut.
6 cups vegetable broth, low sodium
2 T EVOO
1 onion, finely chopped
3 cups acorn squash, peeled and chopped
2 cups Arborio rice
1 cup dry white wine
2 T unsalted butter
1/3 cup grated Parmigiano
Simmer the broth in a large stock pot
In a heavy, large saucepan, heat the oil
Cook the onion until translucent
Add the squash and mix well for a few minutes
Add the rice and toss to coat
Add half of the wine and stir until absorbed
Add the stock 1 ladle at a time, stirring after each addition until the liquid is absorbed
Continue until you have used all the stock
Add the remaining wine and stir until the rice is al dante, a total of about 20 minutes
Stir in butter and Parmigiano cheese
