Ingredients

Amarone Wine Sauce:

Directions

Pumpkin Puree:

In a large heavy-bottomed pot, heat olive oil and then add the onions. Gently fry until soft and translucent. Add the pumpkin, bay leaves and 1 cup of the vegetable stock. Bring to a simmer and cover. Steam over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes. Add a tablespoon of remaining stock to the pumpkin base and mash it down into a puree using the back of a wooden spoon or spatula.

Risotto:

In a large, heavy-bottomed pan, heat some olive oil and add the rice. Add the remaining stock and cook for 12 minutes with the lid on until the stock has been absorbed, the rice is al dente, and has a lovely creamy consistency. Add the pumpkin puree into the risotto pan and stir together.

Finally, add freshly grated Parmesan and butter to the pan and stir well. Season with sea salt and pepper.

Serve the risotto on individual plates and spoon the Amarone Wine Sauce over top.

Amarone Wine Sauce:

In a medium-sized pan, heat the Amarone wine, a pinch of salt, sugar, bay leaf, and cinnamon. Stir well and heat over a low flame until the sugar is dissolved.

In a small bowl, mix together the water and flour. Gradually add the flour and water mixture to the pan, continually stirring, until the sauce has the desired consistency and flour is cooked (the sauce should be clear).
