For the pumpkin risotto

570ml/1 pint low FODMAP vegetable or chicken stock

1 tbsp chopped chives

12 fresh sage leaves, chopped finely

2 tbsp olive oil

170g/6oz arborio (risotto) rice

250g/9oz pumpkin or butternut squash, diced small

50g/2oz vegetable oil

salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the crispy sage

12-16 fresh sage leaves

2 tbsp sunflower oil

For serving

piece fresh parmesan, or vegetarian parmesan-style grating cheese

Lactose free double cream, whisked until thick


Heat the stock until almost boiling and then keep over a very low heat. In a separate heavy-based saucepan sweat the scallions in the oil until soft but not browned. Add the chopped sage and cook for a couple more minutes.

Add the rice and mix well for a few seconds to coat the grains with oil, then pour in one-third of the stock and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook until almost all the stock is absorbed. Add the pumpkin and a little more stock, and continue to simmer gently until the stock is absorbed.

From then on add more stock a little at a time, until the pumpkin is soft and the rice nicely al dente. You may not need all the stock, but the texture should be loose and creamy.

When the risotto is almost ready, heat the sunflower oil in a small pan and quickly fry the sage leaves until crispy - it takes a matter of seconds.

Divide into four servings, add a quenelle of lactose free cream then throw a few crispy sage leaves over each portion. Bring the cheese and a grater to the table for your guests to serve themselves.
