Feed Zone Portables: Baked Rice Balls
These recipes for lemon ricotta or ham and pineapple baked rice balls are the perfect workout fuel to cook up next time you have leftover rice on hand.
When serving up portables at Ironman Hawaii, we didn’t have our trailer along, so we set up shop in a pizza joint. We served up ham & pineapple rice balls because we wanted to give the triathletes a smaller bite. You can make a quick batch of baked rice balls using 2–3 cups of warm rice left over from dinner. Pick your flavor combination, pulse in a food processor, and press a fistful of tasty sticky rice into whatever shape you like.
If you like the lighter texture of baked rice balls, try making your favorite rice cake into a ball.
