Pumpkin Risotto with Spicy Provolone: Thermomix Recipe

Thermomix Pumpkin Risotto with Spicy Provolone

Calling all pumpkin lovers: this delicious Thermomix Pumpkin Risotto with Spicy Provolone matches our favourite squash with spicy Provolone cheese (available in most delis) to create the most amazing combination of flavours! A real treat, especially if you find Carnaroli rice, also known as "the King of rice" in Europe.

This is one of my "fancy family-meals": I like to cook it on Saturdays or Sundays for lunch, because the whole family loves it and on week-ends we can all enjoy our meals together with no pressure from work. So I set the table nicely, serve the risotto in my best dish and treat my favourite people to one of our favourite recipes. Isn't that what life is all about? And thanks to Thermomix I manage to cook like a chef and still be full of energy afterwards to play and plan activities for us all!

If you want to surprise your family with a special meal, you can also try the Duck à l'Orange, the Gorgonzola, Pear and Walnut Risotto or the Mushroom Crepe.

And for the pumpkin-addict out there, I suggest you snack on these delicous Pumpkin Croquettes or enjoy a creamy Pumpkin Soup.

- 75 g extra virgin olive oil

Let's make our Thermomix Pumpkin Risotto with Spicy Provolone

Put 45 g shallot or onion in the mixing bowl and chop slightly 2 Sec. Speed 7.

Add 75 g extra virgin olive oil and stir fry3 Min 100C Speed 1.

Add 200 g rice and cook 3 Min. 100C Reverse Soft Speed.

Add 340 g water and 1 tbsp stock and cook for the rice cooking time 100C Reverse Soft Speed.

My Advice

For the kids, use Parmigiano Reggiano instead of Provolone: they'll love it!
