If there is only one dish you make this November, it needs to be this ultra creamy parmesan pumpkin risotto with pomegranate seeds and fried sage.
This parmesan pumpkin risotto with pomegranate seeds is so insanely creamy from full fat coconut milk, cheesy from fresh parmesan, sweet and tart form the pomegranates. A super satisfying dish that will keep your bellies warm and very, very happy I might add.
I might even suggest topping it with smoky chopped bacon or roasted nuts for an added texture! Just a thought 😉
I figured it was time to give you a savory recipe...I really am just a sucker for baking--the science, the trial and error. Love it so so much! Maybe that has something to do with my total love for desserts in general, but ya know I love savory just as much!
Sit down with your favorite people to enjoy this one pot meal. Your belly will not only thank you, but I have an inkling you just might be grinning ear to ear at first bite.
Love at first bite...hehehe
This is perfect for your celiac and gluten intolerant friends and will swoon not only them, but everybody! I suppose you could make it dairy free or use a dairy free replacement, but in all honesty it just won't be the same!
And being lactose intolerant myself, I'd rather take a dairy pill for one night to eat this pure, mouthwatering meal.
If you have never made risotto, it truly is a labor of love. You must stand there, keep an eye on it, stir it almost continuously. You will wait for your first cup of broth to start to simmer and absorb into the arborio. Then you will add another cup, one at a time until all four cups have been added and absorbed.
A labor of love, that is genuinely worth it.

Yum! We started with wine and added a bit of heat for our preferences, but great creamy flavor combo.
So glad you loved it!!
