I had two cups of leftover rice so I decided to mix some other ingredients in and bake myself brown rice balls. I knew right away, I wanted nuts and veggies, in this recipe so off I went to create. I did read a bunch of recipes for something similar, but when push came to shove, I used what was in my fridge and cabinets and did not worry about anything, I had read about.
Baked Nutty Brown Rice Balls
2 cups fully cooked and cooled brown rice
1/2 cup ground walnuts
1 carrot, shredded
1 zucchini, shredded
1 onion, shredded 1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1 beaten egg 1/4 cup flax seed meal
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Combine all of the above ingredients. Mine did not stick well so I suggest either another egg or a little bit of liquid, added. Mix well.
- Fill 18 mini muffin cups with rice mixture. I used a tablespoon cookie scoop to get approximately the same size balls.
- Bake in a 325 degree oven for 23 minutes. They brown a little. Remove from tins and serve. These have a nutty flavor to them.
