  • 1 clove of garlic
  • ½ a white onion, finely diced
  • 1 rib of celery, diced
  • 1 cup of arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup of mushrooms
  • 2 cups of vegetable stock
  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup of cooked and chopped pumpkin
  • Salt, black pepper
  • ½ tbsp vegan butter


Step 1

Start by frying the onions, garlic, and celery in some hot oil. After 3 minutes you can add the mushrooms. Season and cook for another 5 minutes.

Step 2

Now add the rice and the pumpkin puree. Start by gradually adding stock to the pan, one ladle at a time. This assures that the rice gives in all of its nice starch, which makes the sauce thicker.

Step 3

When all the stock has gone in, the rice should be almost completely soft, but still with a little bite into it. Now add the butter and take off the heat. It should still have some sauce left, which makes your risotto creamy and delicious! Enjoy!
