Meatless Monday: Risotto cakes

image from Everyday Food
Remember that easy bake risotto from a while back? Make some up on Sunday as a side dish and use the leftovers to make risotto cakes! It's worth making a whole batch because those risotto cakes are easy to make!

leftovers from easy bake risotto recipe
mozzarella cubes
All-purpose flour, for dredging
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Form risotto into 8 balls. Press a cube of cheese into center of each ball and flatten risotto into 1/2-inch-thick patties (make sure cheese is covered). Dredge patties in flour and place on a baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm, 15 minutes.

In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium until it sizzles when pinch of flour is added. Dredge patties in flour again (shaking off excess). In two batches, fry patties until golden and warmed through, about 10 minutes per batch. Drain on paper towels.

They are great with a side salad!
