Can You Lose Weight Eating Rice? You Sure Can, With My Seedy Brown Rice Ball Recipe!
2-3 cups of brown rice soaked for 30mins, cooked in salted water for 45mins or until cooked through, and left to cool down over night or for a few hours
2 handfuls of mixed seeds, I used pumpkin, sunflower, flax and linseeds
Tamari or Shoyu sauce, the most natural ones you can find (I get mine in a health shop or Asian supermarket)
Toast the seeds in a shallow pan with no oil for a couple of minutes. Pour a few drops of Tamari or Shoyu sauce into the pan and stir well with a wooden spoon. Let it all cool down.
The cooked rice should have a sticky consistency now, so you can use your hands to make small balls and deep them in the toasted seeds making sure you cover them well (see image above).
Serve 3-4 balls on a plate with a few drops of Tamari or Shoyu sauce on it or on the side, for dipping.
Eat on their own, with steamed Edamame beans or your favourite protein. They go well with meat and fish too!
