Risottos require your constant attention to work because the continual stirring is what creates the creaminess of the rice. The broth should be warm as you ladle it in; heat it up in a sauce pan and have it on the ready before you begin making the risotto.
You could also make risotto in a pressure cooker (Instant Pot) in a lot less time and with much less effort.
Whole Roasted Mini Pumpkins
To make the roasted pumpkin soup bowls: Remove the tops of the pumpkins with a knife (leave a wide rim) and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Brush the outside and inside of the pumpkins with olive oil. Sprinkle salt inside. Place on a baking sheet with their tops on and bake for 20-30 minutes or just until soft to touch but not falling in.
