2 snacks to eat for the Queen's New Year's speech

arincinis

In Denmark one of the most iconic traditions of New Year’s Eve is the Queen’s speech. The clock has turned 6 pm, your guests have arrived (this year we’re not going to be that many, but still). Now it’s time to serve a little finger food and a glass of bubbly. 

It’s no secret that we at Hey Planet aren’t that pleased with the Queen after her - to put it mildly - unfortunate comments on the climate crisis

That’s why we thought that these climate-friendly canapes, that among other things contain our insect-based crispbreads, would be a perfect little statement to eat during the speech.

We’ve made a carrot tartare. We think it tastes better than the one with meat. Furthermore, you can spoil your guests (and yourself) with a deep fried risotto ball, an arancini, that we raised to a new level by breading it in our gourmet crispbread.

Go nuts in the kitchen with this tiny climate tribute!

sustainable arincini

10-12 snacks 

Ingredients

2 tbsp olive oil
3 dl vegetable stock
1 small onion
1 garlic clove
100 g mushrooms
100 g risotto rice
60 parmesan (or a plant-based alternative)
Herbs (like parsley, basil, oregano etc)
1 tsp grated lemon zest

1 bag of Hey Planet Cricket Crispbreads w/ seasalt 
Egg or plant milk
Taste neutral plant oil


Instructions

  1. Make the risotto first by chopping the onion, garlic and mushrooms and washing the risotto rice in cold water.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan and cook the onion and garlic for a few minutes. Add the rice and mushrooms and cook, until the rice grains are clear. 
  3. Add a bit of vegetable stock, and cook until it’s absorbed. Repeat until you’ve used all the stock, and the rice is tender, but still has bite.
  4. Turn off the heat and add parmesan, chopped herbs and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Cool completely in the fridge.
  6. Blend or crush 3-4 crispbreads in a bag, until they are the consistency of breadcrumbs.
  7. Shape the cold risotto into small balls and bread them by wetting them with eggs or milk and rolling them in the crispbread crumbs.
  8. Heat plenty of oil in a pan and deep fry the arancinis, until they’re golden. Only do a few at the time.
  9. Put them on a piece of paper towel and serve them hot.
