So, in the style of Jessica Seinfeld, these fried rice balls are veggie packed. I made them last night in an attempt to persuade the nugget to eat some veggies. However, I also wanted them to be parent-friendly as well.
2 cups cooked leftover, white rice
1/4 c whole milk (I used 1/2 c, but ended up adding more bread crumbs to absorb liquid)
1/2 c shredded cheddar
1/2 cup finely chopped carrot, celery, with 2 cloves garlic (I used a food processor)
1/3 c sweet potato puree (or baby food)
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 c bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 c bread crumbs, crushed crackers, etc.
2 Tbsp Canola Oil
They were actually quite tasty, even though I was really winging it. Mild enough for toddler taste buds, but flavorful enough for parents.
Are you hungry now? What secrets do you have to get your kiddos to eat their veggies?
