Spinach-Rice Balls

This recipe is modified from the one at Cooking with my Kid.

2 cups cooked brown rice
1 egg
1 can (14 oz) spinach
1 green onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup parmasean cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper
cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a baking sheet. Open can of spinach and let drain in a colandar over the sink while you saute green onions in olive oil in a pan over medium heat until translucent. Add drained spinach and garlic and continue to saute until most of the moisture is cooked off. Set aside.

In a medium bowl mix together brown rice, egg whites, bread crumbs, and mozzarella cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Mix in spinach and use hands to form golf ball sized rice balls. Place each rice ball on the prepared baking sheet.

Spray tops of rice balls with cooking spray and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until lightly browned and slightly crispy.

Makes approximately 2 dozen.


  1. These look and sound delicious! I wonder if I could make them without egg. Might have to try it with some kind of substitute. Yum!

  2. I am so going to make this with my 12 year old who loves spinach.
