medium skillet
salt and pepper

Step 1: Roast the Veggies

PREHEAT the oven to 400 degrees.

ARRANGE the mixed seasonal veggies on a baking sheet.

DRIZZLE with extra olive oil packets and gochujang sauce, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine.

ROAST the veggies for 20-25 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

MIX the vegetable broth concentrate with 2 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

★TIP: Slowly cooking the arborio rice is the key to making 4-star restaurant quality risotto. We recommend you take the time to do it right.

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 overcook.)

SEASON to taste with garlic salt

STIR in the whipping cream and chives.

Step 5: Combine the Risotto Ingredients

STIR the remaining butter ball 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.
