large, deep skillet
salt and pepper
Step 1: Roast the Veggies
PREHEAT the oven to 400 degrees.
ARRANGE the fresh mixed veggies (except the butternut squash) on a baking sheet.
DRIZZLE with olive oil and gochujang sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper. Gently toss the veggies on the baking sheet to combine.
ROAST the veggies for 25 minutes. (Check after 20 minutes and remove if the veggies are starting to brown.)
Step 2: Sauté the Onion and Rice
While the veggies roast…
MELT 1 butter ball in a large, deep skillet over medium heat.
ADD the chopped onion and sauté until just soft.
STIR in the arborio rice and cook for 2 minutes.
Step 3: Stir in the Broth
★TIP: For best results, stir in the vegetable broth one cup at a time until completely absorbed.
ADD the vegetable broth, according to the number of servings in your dinner kit:
- 2 Servings: 2 cups
- 4 Servings: 4 cups (full carton)
STIR occasionally and simmer over medium heat until the broth is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 30 minutes.
Step 4: Sauté the Butternut Squash
While the rice is cooking…
MELT 2 butter balls in a small skillet over medium heat.
ADD the butternut squash and sauté until golden and just fork-tender. (Be careful not to over-cook.)
SEASON to taste with garlic salt.
STIR in the whipping cream and chives.
Step 5: Combine the Risotto Ingredients
STIR the remaining butter ball(s) into the hot rice mixture.
ADD the butternut squash mixture and parmesan, stirring gently to combine.
TASTE and re-season as needed.
Step 6: Finish and Serve
SERVE the risotto with roasted veggies on the side.
