Recipe Courtesy of Tracy Kontos

The first time I made my dish was when I was playing around with leftovers. I wanted to have my risotto scraps for lunch, but risotto texture is never the same the next day. However, the flavors are great, even better after having time to sit So I decided to make fried risotto cakes.

  • 1 cup arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 3 cups chicken stock, warmed + 1 cup
  • 1 large shallot
  • 1 teaspoon herbs de Provence
  • 1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms
  • 1 ounce dried chanterlle mushrooms
  • 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • ground white pepper
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • canola oil

  1. Dice mushrooms and reconstituting in 1 cup chicken stock in a pot on medium-high heat.

  2. Add 3 cups chicken stock to pot and gently warm.

  3. Finely dice shallot and saute in oil until translucent. Add rice, briefly toast.
