  • 750g Riso Gallo Sustainable Arborio Rice
  • 3 litres water / 48g of Essential Cuisine Mushroom Stock Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g onions, finely chopped
  • 400g smoked scamorza cheese, diced
  • 180g grated Grana Padano
  • 60g unsalted butter
  • 3 litres vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 30ml dry white wine
  • 1500g mixed mushrooms
  • 20g Essential Cuisine Wild Mushroom Glace
  • Flour to dust
  • 5 eggs for the egg wash
  • 900g breadcrumbs or panko
  • Salad to garnish

To serve

  • Essential Cuisine Signature Hollandaise Sauce

1. Wash and trim the mushrooms and cut thinly. Pan fry in a large pan with olive oil, garlic and herbs, season only when golden, remove from the heat and keep aside.

2. In a large casserole dish, roast the Riso Gallo Sustainable Arborio Rice on a low heat with a pinch of salt, without adding any oil or fat, keep stirring, so the rice does not catch on the bottom of the pan. When the rice is hot, pour the white wine in, letting the alcohol evaporate. Cook for 15 minutes, adding the EC Mushroom Stock Mix a ladle at a time, stir the rice occasionally and keep cooking.

3. While the rice is cooking gently fry the chopped onion in a pan with olive oil and a pinch of salt for about 10 minutes, until golden. When the rice is almost cooked, add the onion, EC Wild Mushroom Glace and cooked mushrooms, stir well and remove from the heat. Add the butter, cheese, egg and seasoning, place onto a tray to cool down.

4. Once cold, form into rice balls around 40-50g each and put plenty of diced scamorza in the middle of each, for the extra ooze effect. Allow to set in the fridge, then pané in the flour, egg and breadcrumbs.

5. Now deep fry the rice balls in vegetable oil at 160°C. For about 5-6 minutes, until golden. Season with salt and serve hot, with extra cheese and optional lemon zest. Garnish with salad and serve with warm EC Signature Hollandaise Sauce on the side.
