The thing I love about this Pumpkin Risotto for Toddlers dish is you don’t have to slave over a hot stove, in fact you aren’t anywhere near the stove, because you use the oven. lol

But yeah, it is sooo simple.

This isn’t a puree recipe, if you do puree, it will be so gluey and gluggy I doubt your angel will eat it, so save it for the over 9 month-ers.





  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees.

  2. Melt butter in a frypan and cook onion, bacon and mushrooms until bacon is crispy.

  3. Combine all ingredients (except cheese) in a casserole dish.

  4. Bake, uncovered for 30-40 minutes. Stir through cheese.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Pumpkin Risotto is suitable to freeze for up to two months.
