Garlic and Sage Roasted Butternut Squash with Lion's Mane Mushroom and New Zealand Spinach Risotto

Cooking Time



Serving Count




  • 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 1 cup Lion's Mane mushrooms (or chicken, chopped)
  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Fresh sage leaves
  • Fresh New Zealand spinach leaves
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • Olive oil for roasting and sautéing
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Toss the cubed butternut squash with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a few sage leaves. Roast in the oven until tender and slightly caramelized, about 25-30 minutes.
  • In a separate large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add the chopped Lion's Mane mushrooms (or chicken) and sauté until they release their moisture and start to brown.
  • Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the skillet and sauté until the onion is translucent.
  • Stir in Arborio rice and cook for a couple of minutes until it becomes translucent at the edges.
  • Begin adding the vegetable broth, one ladle at a time, stirring constantly and allowing the liquid to be absorbed before adding more. Continue this process until the rice is creamy and cooked to your desired consistency (about 18-20 minutes).
  • Gently fold in the roasted butternut squash cubes and fresh New Zealand spinach leaves.
  • Serve the risotto garnished with fresh sage leaves and grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
