Butternut Pumpkin Risotto

Butternut Pumpkin Risotto
i just had a painful tooth extraction a week ago and i've virtually been surviving on semi-solid food. that means porridge oats or cookies dunk in milk. really boring actually. i wanted something for a change and came across this butternut pumpkin risotto recipe which looks really really delicious. it uses vanilla bean in the pumpkin puree and it makes me wonder how vanilla could find its way into savory dishes so i was curious to give it a try.

prior to this i've never had butternut pumpkin/squash and i really love its orange hue and sweet nutty flavor. albeit expensive, its worth every penny. this risotto is actually more sweet than savory and its really very delicious! hubby and i wolfed it down within two seconds :p with the vanilla bean it feels more like a dessert than main so i added more cheese to make it extra savory. and i think i still need more practice when it comes to making risotto, mine always turn out somewhat dry. this one is definitely better than my last but i really want one thats creamy, wet and with grains still intact. i'm getting there (i think).
