How to prepare:

Place the stock in a pan, add the cinnamon stick, simmer for 5 minutes over a low heat, then strain.
 
Heat the oil in a large heavy based pan, add the squash, fry until golden for about 5 minutes, then add the onions, cook for 2-3 minutes, add the rice, stir to coat and cook for one minute.
 
Slowly add the stock, a ladleful at a time, stirring continuously until the rice is cooked ‘al dente’, about 20 minutes in total.
 
Stir in the goats cheese, sage and gently fold in the butter, stir to a creamy consistency.
 
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
 
For the crumble, mix the ingredients together in a bowl, season to taste.
