Easy Baked Mushroom and Pumpkin Brown Risotto 🌱

This brown risotto requires very little stirring and the oven baked method can be used as a basis for all your baked risottos. It's easy to change up your vegetables for variety. For example, you can  substitute pumpkin for sweet potato and add kale chips, spinach, rocket or peas at the very end.

To make it more substantial, you can stir through chicken pieces at the end or to make it vegetarian, you can substitute the chicken broth for vegetable broth.  For garlic sensitive people, you can use Cobram garlic infused oil.
