PUMPKIN RISOTTO

15 g butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion
2 cloves garlic, crushed
6 mushrooms, sliced
1 1⁄2 cups arborio rice
1 cup diced pumpkin (I use butternut)
3 -4 cups hot stock (chicken or vegetable)
1⁄2 cup grated parmesan cheese
salt
freshly ground black pepper
1⁄2 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Heat butter and oil together in a large saucepan or frypan.
Gently cook the onion and garlic.
Add the rice and cook, stirring until the rice is coated in the oil mix.
Cook this about 1 minute.
Stir in the pumpkin and mushrooms.
Pour over 1 cup of the hot stock.
Cook, stirring often until the liquid is almost all absorbed.
You don’t want the liquid to be boiling in with the rice, just a gentle simmer.
Continue stirring and adding stock one cup at a time until the stock is all absorbed and the rice is tender.
This takes about 20 minutes.
You don’t need to stand there stirring the whole time if you use a non-stick pot and return often.
Stir in the parmesan cheese,seasoning and parsley.
It will go lovely and sticky with the cheese.
Serve immediately.

Avocado Quesadillas (Vegan!)

Ingredients
1/2 avocado, more if you prefer
1 small roma tomato, diced
1 green onion, sliced
2 tsp. nutritional yeast (I use this brand)
Seasonings of choice (I love smoked paprika, cumin, garlic powder, etc.)
Salsa (optional)
1 large tortilla (This can be a gluten-free recipe by simply selecting gluten free tortillas)

Note: All these ingredients can be found at Local Foods Market in Westminster.
Still want that cheesy flavor and texture? Try Lisanatti Foods almond cheddar or Daiya dairy and gluten free cheddar style shreds – both found in our dairy section.

Directions
Smash avocado and spread out on one half of the tortilla. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast and any seasonings. Add tomato, green onions, and salsa. (Or save the salsa for dipping!)
Fold over the top half of the tortilla, and place on a skillet over medium heat.
Heat for a few minutes on each side until warmed through.
