This easy vegan pumpkin risotto recipe is great for in fall during the pumpkin season. Great alternative to regular rice and it’s such a warming and good dish. Roasting the pumpkin in the oven makes it even better!
If you are ever looking to have a cozy fall evening with some wonderful food, this rice is a perfect option and I recommend getting maybe some hummus with it.
We love using homemade stock for these kinds of recipes because it’s so simple to make.
