Pumpkin is an excellent source of potassium which helps to keep your muscles functioning at their optimal level.


1 tbsp of olive oil

1 brown onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

4 cups of butternut pumpkin, diced

2 cups of button mushrooms, sliced

2 cups of arborio rice, washed

1L of water

2 tsp of stock powder (reduced salt)

1 cup of fresh basil, chopped

1 cup of cheddar cheese, grated

ground black pepper



1. In skillet over medium heat, add oil and sauté onion and garlic until tender.  

2. Pour rice and pumpkin on top of onions and coat well with oil. Cook and occasionally stir for about 4 minutes.  

3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan heat the water and dissolve the stock. Bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer.
