Celebrating Halloween: Vegan Squash Risotto

Halloween is coming, and many will be decorating the house, finishing the costume and buying candy. Well, I have bought squashes of different types to prepare some recipes for these days.

Last week I posted the vegan pumpkin panellets, so this week I made a salty recipe. It is a vegan risotto, very simple to make and it also does not carry any type of fat. I hope you like it 🙂

Here you can read all my recipes with squashes.

Phase 1 Serves: 1 Prep Time: Cooking Time:


  • 1 little Red Kuri squash (called Hokkaido too)
  • 1 cup butternut squash
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1/4 cup white beans
  • 1/3 cup of brown rice raw
  • 3/4 liter of vegetable broth (if you finish the broth before you can use water)
  • Rosemary
  • 1 pinch of White Pepper
  • Salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 390ºF (200ºC)
  2. Wash the Red Kuri on the outside and cut the top
  3. With a spoon, remove all seeds
  4. Cover the stubs with aluminium foil, so they do not burn
  5. Place the Red Kuri with the hollow up on a baking sheet with a little water
  6. Bake for about 15/20 minutes. When the Red Kuri is cooked, removed it from the oven and stored in the heat
  7. Meanwhile, finely chop the onion and put it in a non-stick pan with 1 or 2 tablespoons of broth. Let cook for a few minutes on low heat
  8. Cut the butternut squash into cubes about 1 cm and add to the onion
  9. After a few minutes add the rice with 1/2 cup of broth and remove
  10. Let the rice cook over medium heat and add 1/2 cup of broth when left almost without liquid
  11. Add rosemary, salt and a little white pepper
  12. When it is 5 minutes to finish the cooking of the rice, put the white beans in a beater with 1/4 cup of broth and beat until obtaining a homogenous puree
  13. Add the puree to the rice to give a creamier texture and continue cooking until the risotto is ready
  14. Fill the Red Kuri with the risotto. The Red Kuri skin is very tender and tasty, so that you can eat
