I have a love affair with risotto. It’s so creamy and comforting and you can practially add any kind of flavoring to it! I make it all the time for my clients with Chantrelle Mushrooms, or Zucchini Ribbons or Asparagus and Parmesan… I mean the possibilities are endless! The only problem with Risotto is that when you have leftovers and you heat it up – it never gets to be that super creamy consistency. But – not to fear – I’ve solved this problem, because honestly, we can’t let Risotto go to waste!! Risotto cakes are the perfect solution. All you do is that the leftover risotto, or a freshly made risotto that you chill, form it into little cakes, send it through the breading process and sear them up in a skillet. Serve it with your favorite pesto sauce and call it a day!! They are to die for – and the perfect little munchie at any time of the day.
I am so excited you are making one of my recipes and I would love to see how it turns out. Make sure to share it on instagram and tag me @whatsgabycookin so I can see your masterpiece!
