  • Step 1

    Cut pumpkin into slices, peel & cut into coarse cubes/fine slices. Put in the Ninja Foodi MAX Multikocher OP500EU for 20 min at 200°C on “Bake”. In the meantime, chop onions finally.

  • Step 2

    Put half of the pumpkin pieces in the Foodi 3-in-1 Power Nutri Mixer and puree with about 80g of butter. Set aside remaining pumpkin pieces.

  • Step 3

    In the pot of the multicooker, using the saute setting on MED heat, add the remaining butter. Sauté briefly with onions. Add the risotto and fry until translucent. Add the wine. When the wine is completely evaporated, deglaze the stock & warm broth until it is cooked to your preference.

  • Step 4

    Stir in puree & pumpkin pieces. Serve with basil & Parmesan.
