Vegan risotto to DIE for!
(and it's vegan)

This was the first time I have made a squash risotto and it came out wonderful!
(Even my fussy boyfriend loved it)

Please, try this and add or substitute whatever ingredients you want.
This actual recipe was a boring squash recipe, so i jazzed it up with raisins and mushrooms :)

ENJOY!!!
