Spring Rice Croquettes

Is there any better than baking golden, crisp Ribe rice croquettes for a cosy, cheerful atmosphere that announces the arrival of Spring season and calls for family and friends around the table?

For those ones, who wish to take the opportunity to try this inviting recipe, here you have the description and ingredients necessary for this dish.

First of all, you have to prepare a good risotto.

a. In a warm pan, sizzle the rice (1 espresso coffee cup filled with rice per person) with chopped onion and garlic in extra vigin olive oil for a couple of minutes. Then, add little white wine and make it evaporate. Cover the rice with vegetable broth. Keep on gently simmering and stiring the rice. In the meantime, add little saffran in it, then it is the turn for peas and little pieces of roast turkey. Salt and pepper at the end, when risotto is done.

b. Let it cool for a while. Then, prepare a mixture made with risotto, generous handfuls of grated Grana Padano cheese, little pieces of spicy provola cheese and breadcrumbs. It is not necessary to add eggs. Make some balls with your hands and roll them in breadcrumbs. You can choose to deep fry them, or gently bake them golden in the oven like I did (170°/180° for 15/20 minutes).

c. In the end, serve the rice croquettes warm and crisp with vegetables of your choice. I had mines with excellent, lightly steamed and then sautéed carrots coming from Polignano a Mare.

Enjoy a delicious tasting and a good start in the new week, everybody. ☺❤
