Recipe: Sunflower Seed "Risotto"

Recipe: Sunflower Seed "Risotto"



Our delicious sunflower seed risotto has been a hit recently, it is a great choice for those looking to limit carbs. The risotto is rice-free, yet retains the classic ricey texture. It is a great summer treat.

Ingredients 
4 cups raw sunflower seeds
2/3 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/2 large onion, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped, divided

3 cups 1/2" cubed butternut squash (about 1 pound squash)
1 lb wild mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons Maldon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoon truffle oil

Preparation
Soak sunflower seeds overnight, then cover pot and boil.
Reduce to a simmer and cook until al dente (about 45 minutes) 
Strain seeds into a large bowl and save the cooking liquid. Put 1 cup of cooking liquid and 1 cup of seeds in blender, add 2/3 cup cream and parmesean, blend until smooth. Discard the rest of the liquid. 
Heat oil in pot over medium. Add onion, half of the garlic and half of the thyme sprigs. Stir until garlic is fragrant and onion is translucent. Add remaining sunflower seeds, cook until they are toasted (about 1 minute). Add broth and wine and simmer until reduced. 
Heat oil in skillet over medium high. Add squash and cook until it begins to brown. Add mushrooms, thyme sprigs, garlic and oil. Cook until tender, this should be about 5 minutes. Season to your liking and set aside.
