We finally got around to making the risotto and it was worth the wait.
Cook some chopped smoked bacon and remove from the pan, add chopped onion and soften a little then add peeled and chopped butternut squash to the pan and cook for about 10 minutes.
Stir in arborio rice and cook for a couple of minutes, coating the rice well.
Add hot vegetable stock a little at a time until all of the liquid is absorbed and the stock used up (about 150g of rice to 1 litre of stock).
Add the bacon about five minutes before the end.
Season and serve when the rice is tender.
