Are you looking for a recipe that can work for your meat-free Monday? Thanks to the South African Mushroom Farmers’ Association we have this excellent meatless recipe of tasty rissoles.

What is a rissole exactly? A rissole is usually made of a patty that is enclosed in either pastry, or rolled in breadcrumbs. It is usually baked or deep fried. Since it is baked or deep fried in pastry or bread crumbs you can substitute the patty for anything that will keep the form and hold the pastry or breadcrumbs together. Rissoles, also do not need to be shaped like a patty and can work well with prawns or shrimp as well.

However, if you are looking for a rissole that looks like a patty without the meat for your burger night, we have found mushrooms work the best.
