comfort food risotto with Pumpkin, Bacon + Peas

Definitely a curl-up-on-the-couch comfort food favourite! In this one, the usual stock is replaced with Nutra Organics bone broth for great flavour and added gut loving goodness. Thank you to our Gut Health Ambassador Dawn Ballagh for this yummy recipe - make sure you follow her @travellin_gourmet!


1 tbsp olive oil

20g butter

1 brown onion, finely diced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

250g middle bacon rashers, rind removed + diced

750g pumpkin, diced

1 cup arborio rice

3 cups water

1 tsp Nutra Organics Natural Bone Broth Concentrate

1 cup frozen peas

1 cup finely grated parmesan


Heat oil and butter in a large, deep frying pan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and bacon. Cook for 8 minutes or until soft. Add pumpkin and rice. Stir until well combined.

Mix bone broth concentrate and water together. Add 1/2 cup of bone broth and stir to combine. Bring to the boil and cook for 1 minute or until absorbed. Add remaining broth and bring to the boil. Cover pan, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 12 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Add peas and 3/4 cup of parmesan. Gently stir until combined.

Sprinkle with remaining parmesan and serve.
