Spinach rice balls

Here is another simple and yummy spinach dish recipe which helped me a lot with the leftover rice and a few spinach leaves in the fridge. For a big cheese fan like me, this is simply awesome. I served it as the main dish with some tomato salad but even if you served it as an appetizer or salad itself, everyone would be delighted to eat it. Serve with marinara if you like it.


2 tsp oil
1 cup cut-leaf spinach
1/2 small onion, diced
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 cup cooked rice
1/2 cup grated feta cheese *use any other if you like
1 large egg


1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Line baking sheet with nonstick foil. Heat 2 tsp oil in skillet over medium heat. Add 1 cup cut-leaf spinach, onion, diced, and minced garlic; cook 2 minutes until spinach is tender.

2. Stir into spinach mixture cooked rice, cheese (feel free  Parmesan, egg and pepper.

3. Drop rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes or until firm. Makes about 10.
