Sushi is back! And this time with brown rice. I was inspired by the season, and the abundance of beautiful winter squash in the market. This recipe is so satisfying, and full of unique flavors that marry insanely well together. The savory-sweet creaminess of the kabocha squash balanced with the earthy meatiness of the mushrooms, the sharpness of pickled onions, and the surprise sweet and spicy kick from the wasabi corn sauce.
It’s fall, and you know what that means: Squashes are sneaking their way into everything! And yes, pumpkin, I’m look at you. Today, I’m giving a less prolific squash its due time in the spotlight. This recipe is a sort of deconstruction of a squash risotto, but it’s also a kind of squash risotto “inception”. You see, I’ve taken the squash out of the risotto, but then I’ve gone and put the risotto inside of the squash. Boom! I know. It’s complicated. And intense. But oh so worth it.
Looking for anything in particular?
