Makes 12 balls | Prep 15 mins | Cook 10 mins | Calories 133 (per ball)

leftover leek and porcini risotto – about 300g (10½oz) (see page 76)

150g (5¼oz) breadcrumbs

60ml (2floz) oat milk

3 tbsp flour rapeseed oil, for frying


40g (1½oz) peas

10g (1⁄3oz) fresh mint, about 4 stalks

60ml (2floz) olive oil

a pinch of salt and pepper

juice of ½ a lime

1 Preheat the oven to 180ºC/Gas Mark 4.

2 Place the breadcrumbs evenly on a baking tray and bake for about 5 minutes to toast.

3 Place the flour and oat milk into separate dishes in preparation.

4 Roll the leftover risotto into balls just smaller than a golf ball.

5 Coat them one by one in the flour, then the oat milk and then roll them in the toasted breadcrumbs.

6 Repeat this until around six or seven are made, then add them to a non-stick pan with 3 tbsp rapeseed oil on a high heat.

7 While the balls are frying, repeat the process with the remaining risotto.

8 Keep an eye on the arancini in the pan, turning when golden brown.

9 Once cooked, place on top of kitchen roll to soak up any excess oil.

10 For the dip, take the leaves off the fresh mint stalks. Simply pop all of the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste test, adding a little more salt, lime or pepper if needed.
