A.k.a. Rice Balls. Rice symbolizes prosperity and wealth, so rice balls are good for New Year’s or just any regular day.
In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 egg, cheese, parsley, oregano, pepper, and the salt. Cover and refrigerate.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add all vegetables and cook until softened, about 10 to 15 minutes. Pour vegetable stock into the same skillet and bring to a boil. Stir in rice and reduce heat to low. Cook rice until water is almost absorbed, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and slowly pour in egg mixture, stirring rapidly to prevent the egg from scrambling. Allow the rice mixture to cool for about an hour.
Beat the remaining egg. Pour bread crumbs, beaten egg and flour into three separate dishes. Roll rice mixture into 1-inch balls, then coat each one with flour, then egg, then bread crumbs.
In a small, deep skillet, heat olive oil to 350 degrees F (you should have enough oil to completely cover the rice balls). Fry rice balls 6 at a time, turning as needed to ensure even browning. Drain on paper towels and serve warm with marinara sauce.
I am a Mexican food fiend and nothing makes me happier than a big bowl of pico de gallo and chips. This is such an easy recipe and you can make it mild, medium or spicy depending on what you prefer. I like spicy, so jalapeno peppers are for me, but you could add habanero peppers if you like a lot of heat!
