Baked Rice Balls Meatless Recipe Video



Ever over cook rice? Well I did and I am very glad I did. See, I got a new rice cooker and hit cook twice instead of warm after it was cooked and got mush. No problem. Well I made these with a exceptional grade olive oil and baked them and it gave me the WOW factor! These came out great, crispy and I always want to over cook my rice on purpose now! Also what a great alternative when on a diet and not eating fried foods to not leave this delicious savory appetizer off my list of high calorie foods.

3 cups over cooked rice mushy
1 cup Tomato sauce
1 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
1/2 cup Grating cheese

olive oil


Mix the rice, parsley, egg, sauce, cheese, garlics, salt, pepper and cayenne if using. Mold into meatballs and roll into italian seasoned bread crumbs.
