Pumpkin risotto

Difficulty: easy

Preparation time: approx. 40 minutes

Ingredients (for 4 servings):

  • about 1 kg Hokkaido pumpkin
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 80 g butter
  • Fleur de Sel
  • 200 g risotto rice (best Carnaroli rice)
  • 50 ml white wine

  • 1/4 l oil for frying
  • 4 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  • 4 tablespoons pumpkin seed oil


  1. Remove the fibrous interior of the Hokkaido pumpkin and seeds with a tablespoon. Cut pumpkin into thick slices and peel.

  2. For the pumpkin chips from a pumpkin sliced ​​with a truffle slicer, chop off approx. 80 g of wafer-thin shavings and set aside. Cut remaining pumpkin into small cubes.
  3. Peel the shallot and garlic clove and finely dice. Sauté in 30 g of butter until glassy. Add the pumpkin cubes, sauté and lightly salt. Add rice, sauté while stirring. Deglaze with white wine, let it boil down.
  4. Pour so much of the hot broth to the risotto that it's just barely covered. Slowly boil the liquid while stirring. Repeat the process until the risotto is creamy, but the individual grains still bite (about 20 minutes).
  5. Heat the oil in a small saucepan and fry the pumpkin chips in portions golden brown. Lift out with a foam trowel and drain on kitchen paper. Roast the pumpkin seeds in a small pan, remove.
  6. Remove remaining 50 g butter and parmesan under the risotto, season to taste. Distribute on serving dishes. Press in each case a small hollow, pour in the pumpkin seed oil. Distribute pumpkin seeds and pumpkin chips on top.
