  • 1 X 150g Livesey Bros Buna Shimeji
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Garlic Clove (crushed)
  • 20g Grated Parmesan
  • 300g Risotto Rice
  • 150ml White Wine
  • 750ml Vegetable Stock (2 cubes)
  • 16 Mozzarella Pearls
  • 150g Plain Flour

  • Vegetable Oil for Deep Frying


    1. Add the chopped onion and crushed garlic to a pan and cook for 2 minutes until soft
    2. Add the risotto rice and cook for a further 2 minutes before adding the white wine
    3. When the wine has absorbed, add some of the stock, stir and when the rice has absorbed the liquid, add more stock- Continue this process until all the stock has been absorbed
    4. Set the risotto to one side to allow it to cool
    5. Meanwhile, heat a pan of oil (for deep frying)
    6. Lightly fry the Buna Shimeji for 1 minute then set aside
    7. Roll the risotto into a ball the size of a golf ball, then gently push some Buna Shimeji into the centre of the ball along with a Mozzarella pearl, then roll the ball in your hands until smooth
    8. Coat the ball in the flour, then the egg and finally breadcrumbs
    9. Follow this process with the remaining risotto until you have made 16 balls
    10. Deep fry the Arancini for 5 minutes until golden brown and the breadcrumbs are crispy, then allow them to drain before serving
