Number of Servings: 6


    4 c. low salt chicken broth
    4 c. water
    1 onion, chopped fine
    1 tsp. olive oil
    2 c. arborio rice
    2 oz. parmesan-- grated
    1 TB unsalted butter
    ground black pepper
    pinch nutmeg
    2 c. diced butternut squash, cooked
    fresh sage-- about 2 TB minced.
    16 oz. cooked diced turkey breast


Bring broth & water to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low and keep warm.

Combine onion, oil, and salt in a large saucepan. Add diced turkey. Saute over low heat until onion is soft.

Increase heat to medium and add the rice-- cooking until the edges of the grains are transparent (about 4-5 min).

Stir in about 4 c. of the warm broth and the butternut squash and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed & the bottom of the pan is dry.

Continue to cook-- stirring frequently and adding 1/2 c. of broth at a time as needed to keep the pan bottom from drying out. Continue until you're out of broth and the grains of rice are cooked but somewhat firm.

Stir in the cheese, butter, and fresh sage, and season w/ salt and pepper.

  • Incredible!
    Delicious! I only had 1.5 cups arborio rice and someone watching carbs, so decreased rice, liquid, and low fat Parmesan cheese. Left others as is. Had 2 quarts total, so adjusted it to 8 one cup servings for 237 calories. It was fantastic and easy to make! - 3/19/13

  • This is a truly awesome recipe. I roasted a turkey breast just to make this again. It has an amazing rustic flavor and is very satisfying. - 1/6/13

  • Wow, arborio rice is 160 calories for 1/4 cup! Even regular white long grain is 150 calories for 1/4 cup. - 11/15/12
