This creamy risotto boasts all the earthy flavors of the holidays. Asparagus helps prevent cognitive impairment and is also a rich source of glutathione, which helps break down carcinogens. Pumpkin promotes heart health and reduces blood pressure.



  • 1 cup Onion
  • 2 stalk , medium celery
  • 1 cup Brown Rice
  • 1 cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 3 cups Vegetable Broth

  • 1/2 tsp Dried Sage

1 Place the oil in the bottom of a large skillet, over medium heat.
2 Add the onion and celery and sauté for a minute or two.
3 Add the pumpkin and then the rice and then ½ cup of broth, stir.
4 As the broth gets absorbed, keep adding it by half cups. You may need to turn down the heat once you have a boil going. Keep stirring (It doesn’t have to be continuous but be sure to keep stirring.)
5 Add the asparagus, sage, and pepper.
6 Continue cooking for 45 minutes while you stir and keep adding broth.
7 Towards the end of cooking mix in the 2 teaspoons of white miso paste dissolved in a little broth and cook for 5 minutes more then turn off the heat.
8 Squeeze in the juice from ½ - all of the lemon depending on how juicy the lemon is and your taste.
9 Garnish with parsley.
