Ingredients

  • 175g Gallo My Risotto Perfetto Porcini Mushroom
  • 75g frozen petits pois
  • 20g Parmigiano Reggiano, finely grated
  • 60g Waitrose Taleggio, cut into 4
  • 1 essential Waitrose egg, beaten
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 50g Cooks' Ingredients Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 20g unsalted butter, melted
  • 350g tub essential Tomato And Chilli Pasta Sauce
  • 50g pack babyleaf salad
  • 1 tbsp aged balsamic and olive oil dressing

Method

  1. Tip the risotto into a pan with 450ml water. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 12 minutes, stirring increasingly towards the end of cooking, until no liquid remains. Take off the heat, stir in the petits pois and Parmigiano Reggiano, then spread over a plate. Cool for 30 minutes, then chill for at least 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. With damp hands, flatten out ¼ of the cooled risotto into a circle in the palm of your hand. Place a piece of Taleggio cheese in the centre, then wrap the risotto around it. Repeat to make 4 risotto cakes.

  3. One at a time, dip the cakes all over in the egg, then the flour, then back in the egg and finally roll them in the panko crumbs to coat. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and spoon the melted butter over the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

  4. Just before serving, heat the sauce according to the pack instructions. Serve 2 risotto cakes per person, with half the tomato sauce and the salad leaves tossed with the balsamic and olive oil dressing.

Cook’s tip

The risotto cakes can be prepared up to 12 hours in advance and kept in the fridge until ready to bake.
