Risotto Cakes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Manami

I have been looking for a recipe for these and there were none for what I wanted so I decided to create my own. I like to eat them by themselves or as a side dish, you can also make them smaller and use as an appetizer instead of crostini or bruschetta.

I loved this concept. I usually am not a fan of risotto; however, this changed my mind. Made a great side dish. You could do alot of experimenting with this. Thanks !
