Calling all risotto and arancini fans. These risotto balls are a cross between the two! My tip: Use up leftover risotto from the day before or make double the amount.

How it's done

Heat the oil in a pan. Sauté the onion. Add the rice and sauté until translucent, stirring constantly. Pour in the white wine and reduce almost completely. Stir in the tomato sauce. Gradually add the stock, stirring frequently, so that the rice is always just covered with liquid. Simmer for approx. 20 mins. until the rice is creamy and al dente. Mix in the cheese, season the risotto and leave to cool.

Risotto balls

Mix the cream cheese, tomatoes and olives into the rice. Divide the mixture into approx. 20 portions, shape into balls. Place the breadcrumbs in a deep dish, toss the rice balls in the breadcrumbs and press firmly on the crumb coating. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Fry the risotto balls in batches for approx. 5 mins. all over until crispy, drain on kitchen paper.
