Clean up your risotto by using brown rice instead of white rice. Brown rice is a complex carbohydrate and whole-grain, which contains proteins, thiamine, calcium, magnesium, fiber, and potassium. Your body will thank you for keeping your sugar and energy levels steady.
In a large saucepan, heat olive oil and then add pumpkin for seven minutes on medium heat, stirring often. Add rice and stir.
Add three cups vegetable broth and bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer – keep stirring.
Add more vegetable broth until all is absorbed by rice. This usually takes 15 to 20 minutes.
Add coconut oil, pumpkin seeds, and pecans. Stir and season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
