Hearty Mushroom Risotto Balls

Type of meal: Main Meal

I first made this for Christmas to serve as an accompaniment to the roast vegetables. They were an absolute hit. The mushroom flavour comes through so strong, with contrasting textures where the outside is crispy and almost crunchy followed by a soft risotto centre.

Definitely one to remember. One thing to note though is that it does take a while because you have to let the rice slowly absorb the stock. So probably best to plan this one in advance but well worth it.
