Crunchy & Tasty, these little bites, called arancini in Italian are made with creamy risotto. I like to stuff little surprises like marinated mushrooms in the middle. Perfect for parties, make ahead & reheat in the oven ready to serve. Best of all? This recipe is 100% vegan
Think of a sformato as a little like a cross between a dense soufflé and a crustless quiche. The term literally means ‘unmoulded’ in Italian, which doesn’t sound half as romantic when you translate it. It can be made with all sorts of vegetables and makes a really impressive vegetarian main course.
Deep-Fried Courgette Flowers Stuffed with Ricotta and Herbs
Once only a common sight in Italian food markets, courgette flowers are now widely available and this classic Italian dish from Michelin-starred chef Theo Randall makes the most of them. Deep-Fried Courgette Flowers Stuffed with Ricotta and Herbs make a stunning summer starter or light lunch - the perfect vegetarian dish to impress your guests.
Chicken and Chorizo Lasagne from Dean Edwards' Mincepiration. This is a Spanish take on a classic Italian dish – lynch me if you like, but you really should give this a go. You can use turkey or pork mince in this recipe too if you want to skip mincing the chicken thighs. Lovely served with a crisp side salad and some garlic bread. http://thehappyfoodie.co.uk/recipes/chicken-and-chorizo-lasagne
