Grate the Parmesan and chop the leftover cheeses (the quantities as you prefer and according to the quantity of the purèe) , the nuts or almonds.

To make the croquettes more attractive, you can put in the middle of each croquette a piece of melting cheese, that , frying, it will melt and offer  a “sweet heart”.
