Lemon and Herb Risotto Cake
There is very little work that goes into this in general. This particular dish is unusual in that it is partially cooked in a pan but finished in the oven. Cheesy, herbaceous and delicious, it makes a filling main course when served with a green salad but makes an excellent accompaniment when meat is the main course. It can be served hot or cold and packs excellently for picnics. Do make sure to use the short grain Arborio rice, as it works the best. If you can't get Arborio rice, carnaroli rice will do in a pinch. Long grain rice will not work in this recipe, so don't even attempt to try it!
