Pumpkin Risotto with Seared Scallops
When Risotto Met Pumpkin Pie: now that's a romance worth watching...I mean, tasting. Thanks Spoon Fork Bacon for sharing this must-try seasonal Risotto recipe.
I love pumpkin almost as much as I love risotto….almost. To me pumpkin is something that’s completely underrated. Sure, there’s pumpkin spice lattes (totally yum) and pumpkin pie (again, yum), but there’s so much you can do with pumpkin that I want to see done more often, like maybe pumpkin ale beer brats?…roasted pumpkin hummus?….or even baked pumpkin chips?! Today we’re sticking with pumpkin risotto and topping it off with seared scallops (light and sweet to compliment the pumpkin flavor) and a confetti of candied pancetta (because confetti is fun and candied pancetta is awesome).
