Lonneke asked me to start writing about family meals. So, here is a dish that my family really loves!

Of course I will still post a few of my raw dishes that my family enjoys as well. All though I am a raw foodie, my family eats vegetarian cooked meals. I do taste the food whenever I prepare it. My daughter is a vegetarian so I cook a lot of grains, beans and vegetables for her. Today I am going to give you my Butternut Squash Risotto Recipe.

I don’t really ever measure anything. I just go with my feeling with how much of an ingredient I need for the meal.
