To make the risotto, heat the oil in a shallow saucepan. Add the onion, pepper, and squash. Fry for a few minutes then add the garlic and rice and stir.

Add the Knorr Zero Salt Veggie Stock. Cover with a lid and simmer for 18-20 minutes until all the stock has been absorbed. Add the peas and cheese and simmer for 2 minutes.

For the Arancini Balls, cool the mixture and shape into 12 balls. Dip into egg and roll in the breadcrumbs. Heat a little sunflower oil in a frying pan. Add the balls and fry for 4-5 minutes until golden brown and heated through. Add the basil just before serving.
