A Veg Risotto Inspired by Our Turkey + Duck Recipe
While it is essential for the development and day-to-day life of puppies (and adult dogs) to eat a Protein Centric Diet™ such as the products found in our Field + Forest™ range. There’s no reason why you can’t draw a little veggie-meal inspiration from the delicious fresh fruits, veg and herbs found in our signature, grain free Turkey + Duck recipe – like whole green peas, oranges, butternut cranberries and ground oregano.
Roasted Butternut Orange Risotto Recipe
By: All Recipes
Cook time: 40 Mins
Prep time: 15 Mins
- 2 Cups cubed butternut squash
- 3 Tablespoons olive oil
- Sea salt to taste
- Ground white pepper to taste
- 4 Cups unsalted chicken stock
- 2 Cups orange juice
- 1 Large sprig fresh rosemary
- 1 Sweet onion, diced
- 1/4 Cup short-grain Italian rice
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1/3 Cup chopped, dried cranberries
- 1 Tablespoon chopped pecan nuts
- Preheat oven to 200°C.
- Toss butternut squash chunks lightly with 1 tablespoon olive oil, a pinch of sea salt and white pepper. Spread chunks out on a roasting pan and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender.
- Combine chicken stock, orange juice, and rosemary in a saucepan. Bring to boil then reduce heat and slowly simmer.
- Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Then add onions and saute for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the onion is translucent. Add the short-grain Italian rice then cook until rice is coated and starting to toast, stirring thoroughly for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Pour in 1 cup of the unsalted chicken stock and orange juice mixture, stirring until the liquid is absorbed into the rice.
- Continue to add liquid 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until fully absorbed before adding the next 1/2 cup. Repeat until all the liquid has been added. You can then remove the pan from the heat and discard the rosemary sprig. Stir in roasted butternut squash, butter, and dried cranberries then season with salt and white pepper and top with chopped pecans.
