large, deep skillet
liquid measuring cup
salt and pepper
1. ROAST THE VEGGIES
PREHEAT the oven to 400 degrees.
ARRANGE the mixed seasonal veggies on a baking sheet.
DRIZZLE with olive oil and gochujang, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine.
ROAST the veggies for 20-25 minutes.
2. SAUTÉ THE ONION & RICE
While the veggies roast…
MELT 1 butter ball in a large, deep skillet over medium heat.
ADD the onion and sauté until just soft.
STIR in the arborio rice and cook for 2 minutes.
3. STIR THE BROTH
MIX the vegetable broth concentrate with 3 cups hot water in a liquid measuring cup.
★ADD the vegetable broth to the risotto ONE HALF CUP AT A TIME until absorbed.
STIR and simmer over medium heat until the rice is tender, about 30 minutes, turn off heat when finished. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
★COOKING TIP FROM CHEF K: Slowly cooking the arborio rice is the key to making 4-star restaurant quality risotto vs. a risotto you might find at a place named Pistol Pete's Pizza Ranch & Burgers. We recommend you take the time to do it right.
4. SAUTÉ THE BUTTERNUT SQUASH
While the rice is cooking…
MELT 4 butter balls in a small skillet over high heat.
ADD the butternut squash and sauté until golden and just fork-tender. (Be careful not to overcook.)
SEASON to taste with garlic salt.
STIR in the half and half and chives. Turn off heat.
5. COMBINE THE RISOTTO INGREDIENTS, SERVE & ENJOY!
STIR the remaining butter ball into the hot rice mixture.
ADD butternut squash mixture and parmesan cheese, stirring gently to combine.
TASTE and re-season with salt and pepper as needed.
SERVE the risotto with roasted veggies on the side and enjoy!
