Butternut Squash Risotto Cakes

Butternut Squash Risotto Cakes

Risotto is one of those restaurant dishes that sounds fancy but lets be honest, its rice. Risotto is much more about the technique, getting a creamy but not mush texture and nice flavor. This dish gives you much more wiggle room and is much simpler to make. What I absolutely love about these is the mild sweetness from the butternut squash, a touch of cinnamon and the plump arborio rice. I give them a light breading with whole wheat bread crumbs and then they are baked in the oven until crisp and a beautiful golden color.

This recipe contains rice (arborio), squash (butternut), cinnamon (ground), salt, black pepper, bread crumbs (whole wheat)
