For Risotto
● 2 tablespoons olive oil

● 1/2 cup Food Club 100% Pure Pumpkin puree
● 2 cups arborio rice
● 4-5 cups Food Club Chicken Cooking Stock, divided

  1. In a large skillet or frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add fresh sage leaves and
    fry until crispy, about 5 seconds. Transfer to paper towel. To the same pan add onion and
    salt. Cook until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add rice and coat with oil, stirring 1 minute
