The great thing about risotto is that it’s really simple to prepare and makes a great last minute meal. There is one problem with this almost perfect dish and that’s the inability to eat it as a leftover. You can try reheating risotto but it literally tastes so sticky and tough that you will wonder how you ever ate this now foreign but faintly familiar Italian favourite.
Don’t worry! And don’t you dare throw it away! I’ve come up with a great way to save your day-old risotto. With three easy steps, you can turn them into another Italian classic! Arancini is basically fried rice balls and they are great as a meal or even, if rolled to be super small, you can use them as an appetizer at a party (just don’t tell your guests that you’re serving them leftovers – that term has a little bit of a stigma attached to it).
Okay, so, I’ve put the steps down below but I haven’t included measurements because it really depends on how much leftover risotto you are working with. I included some photos too, if that helps. I hope I helped you in the never ending task of cleaning up the fridge. Bye for now!
