butternut squash and caramelised onion risotto

Is there anything better on a crisp and cold autumnal evening, than  running home from work in record time (mostly due to my new watch, I suspect. Best birthday present ever), and then finding a spanking new risotto recipe, care of one of those free cards you pick up in the supermarket?

We’re loving our risottos at the moment, and squash and pumpkin are obviously terribly du jour, so clearly pumpkin risotto is a match made in autumnal heaven. As with everything, we’ve already got a standard version care of Donna Hay and her leek and feta-laced version, but by dint of fact we’ve not had it since 2010 I’m willing to suggest it’s not our bestest Arborio-Cucurbita love-in.

As it turns out, this one from Waitrose is amazing. Not only is it rich, warming and hearty enough to sooth Ana’s cold, I also get to use my new birthday-risotto spoon. Even better not only do you not have to stir it (much), it’s also a handy home for my rapidly going out of date jar of dried thyme. BOOMTOWN!
