Ingredients - Serves 20

  • 500g Sun White Mediterranean rice
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 200g butter
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 large garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 100g Parmesan cheese grated
  • 200g Mozzarella or Tasty Coon, cut into cubes
  • 100g dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • vegetable oil for deep frying
  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and cook over low heat for 3-4 mins until softened but not browned. Heat the stock to simmering point in another saucepan.
  2. Add rice to the onion and cook, stirring for 1 minute to seal the rice. Add the wine and stir until the wine is absorbed. Add several ladles of the stock, stirring continuously so that the rice cooks evenly. Keep adding enough stock to just cover the rice, stirring frequently. Continue this way for about 20 minutes or until the rice is creamy.
  3. Add more water or vegetable stock if the rice is not fully cooked. Make sure all this liquid is absorbed. Remove from the heat and stir in parmesan, then spread out onto a tray covered with cling wrap. Leave to cool and if possible, leave in the fridge overnight.
  4. To make arancini, roll a small amount of risotto into a golf ball, press a hole in the middle with your thumb, place a small pice of cheese inside (or with a teaspoon of bolognese sauce for a different variety) and press the risotto around it to form a ball. Roll each in the beaten eggs and then in breadcrumbs pressing to coat well.
  5. Heat enough oil to 180˚c in a deep frying pan to fully cover arancini. Deep fry arancini in batches without crowding for 3-4 mins. Drain on paper towels and leave for a couple of minutes before eating. Serve hot or at room temperature.

    3 Helpful Tips1. It is not absolutely vital to cghane what you eat if it is too taxing but rather one needs to modify the number of meals eaten. Optimally this should range from 6-8 meals. The reason is that fat builds up when we eat too much at once.2. Try not to eat carbs 3 hours before bed because this too will store as fat because the energy from the carbs is not burned very much during inactivity this doesn’t mean to have a low carb diet.3. As for healthy foods I lost 20 lbs (in 6-8 weeks) by making healthy shakes in a blender. For example a tasty blend would be: 1 cup oatmeal + 1 scoop of vanilla protein + 1-2 tbsp of organic peanut butter you can experiment with this basic structure and add variety to it if needed but overall the aforementioned blend would be pretty complete food in regards to carbs-protein-fat ratio. Also it would count as 1 meal. If you are not eating any fruits and veggies I would recommend taking a one-a-day multivitamin in which all the % are near 100. Be Well and Goodluck
