If you have not tried oven baked risotto yet, it's time to try it.
The recipe I have here for oven baked risotto is made in one pot. The risotto is baked in the oven, the vegetables are baked in the oven and the result is simply divine.
This recipe is also ideal for kids.
Tips and Substitutions
Risotto needs arborio rice(I personally use this).).
If you are not vegans you can use cream cheese of your choice instead of vegan.
Instead of vegan grated cheese at the end of the recipe you can use parmesan.
In my recipe I used ready cooked pumpkin. If you get it raw you will first need to boil it or bake it until it softens.
Spinach is optional.
If you like this recipe you can try the following:
