    About this recipe: This recipe is a great way to use leftover risotto rice. Goat's cheese is used to stuff risotto balls, then pan-fried to perfection. Serve as a side dish or nibble.

    Ingredients
    Makes: 10 

    • 150g dry flavoured risotto
    • 115g goat's cheese
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil

    1. Prepare risotto according to packet directions. Chill in the fridge at least 1 hour, until cooled.
    2. Roll risotto into 5cm mounds. Place a marble-sized chunk of goat cheese on each mound. Press cheese chunks into mounds, then roll mounds around cheese, creating balls.
    3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil and cook the risotto balls, turning occasionally, until evenly golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper and serve hot.
