Looking for easy vegetarian dinner recipes that really scream autumn? You’re going to love our pumpkin risotto recipe! It looks like a gourmet meal but takes less than half an hour to make. The best part? Everything goes into one skillet so you won’t have to clean up a huge mess! It goes great with a side of homemade garlic bread.

Like many people this time of year, I’m absolutely crazy for pumpkin. I love everything sweet from pumpkin pie to lattes, but over the last year, I’ve really wanted to try making healthy pumpkin recipes. It’s such a powerhouse of a veggie, full of fiber, vitamins and minerals. On its own, it’s a relatively low-fat food. I just tend to add it to a bunch of sugary foods and it ends up becoming a high-cal dessert. Since I’m a picky eater and it’s one of the few vegetables that I really love, I’ve decided to try making more easy vegetarian dinner recipes with it! This yummy pumpkin risotto recipe is definitely a great place to start, don’t you think? Make sure you check out our video tutorial and grab the printable recipe card below!
