Arancini with Sun-dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella



Prep Time

20 minutes

Cook Time

30 minutes


Olive oil
White Wine
Salt & Pepper to taste
Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese
Sun-dried Tomatoes


  1. Start by cooking the Arborio rice.
  2. Pre-heat your Zwilling Twin Classic Saucepan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and sauté the onion until it starts to become tender – about 5 minutes. Add the rice and stir well to coat all the grains of rice. Add the white wine. Let this simmer and get absorbed by the rice. Then add the stock and water, cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Taste the rice to make sure it is tender. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and stir in the grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Spread the rice out onto a baking sheet to cool.
  4. While the rice is cooling, cut the Mozzarella into ¾-inch cubes.
  5. Once the rice has cooled, combine the rice with the eggs, sun-dried tomatoes and ½ cup of the breadcrumbs. Place the remaining breadcrumbs in a shallow dish. Shape the rice mixture into 12 balls. Press a hole in the rice ball with your finger and push one or two cubes of Mozzarella cheese into the hole. Mold the rice back into a ball, enclosing the cheese. Roll the finished rice balls in the breadcrumbs and place them on a baking sheet while you make the remaining rice balls. Spray or brush the rice balls with olive oil.
  6. Pre-heat the air fryer to 195 °C.
  7. Cook six Arancini at a time. Air-fry for 10 minutes. Gently turn the Arancini over, brush or spray with oil again and air-fry for another 5 minutes.
  8. While the Arancini cook, warm the marinara in your Zwilling Twin Classic Saucepan on the stovetop. Serve the Arancini warm, with the marinara pooled on the bottom of the plate, spooned over the top, or on the side to dip into.
