1/4 cup loosely packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
extra virgin olive oil, parmesan, to serve
Roasted pumpkin risotto
Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Line an oven tray with baking paper.
Combine pumpkin and 2 tablespoons of the oil on the prepared tray; season with sea salt. Roast pumpkin for 25 minutes or until tender and browned lightly. Sprinkle with chilli. Reserve one-third of the pumpkin; cover to keep warm. Divide remaining pumpkin in half; mash one half in a small bowl.
Meanwhile, bring stock to a gentle simmer in a medium saucepan.
Melt butter in a large heavy-based saucepan over medium heat; cook onion, stirring, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add garlic and rice; stir to coat well. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add wine; simmer until liquid has evaporated.
Add ½ cup stock to rice mixture; cook, stirring, until liquid is absorbed. Continue adding stock, ½ cup at a time, stirring after each addition, until half the stock has been added. Stir in both mashed and un-mashed pumpkin, then continue adding stock, ½ a cup at a time, stirring after each addition, until all the liquid has been absorbed - this will take a total of about 20 minutes.
Remove risotto from the heat; stir in parmesan. Season to taste.
Serve risotto topped with reserved pumpkin, parsley and a drizzle of extra oil and parmesan.
