Fifteen minute lunches are my jam.
Veggie packed and delicious are my two main criteria and these certainly fit the bill!
Made with nutrient-rich kale, sweet potato and avocado – these meet your 2-3 servings of daily vegetables. Rounded out with melt-in-your-mouth, cheesy, crispy ARANCINI.
Today on CBS WTOC-TV, I shared warm meals for winter including these delicious last minute appetizers – Arancini by Lundberg Family Farms. They are frozen, stuffed rice balls made with organic brown rice cooked risotto style, rolled in gluten-free breadcrumbs before being lightly fried so they are nice and crispy on the outside. Pop them in the oven and they are ready in about 15 minutes.
They come in the Gouda and Mozzarella flavor made with brown rice and cheese, Black Rice variety is more earthy and the Gochujang is inspired by spicy Korean cuisine – stuffed with peas, carrots and sesame seeds. Besides serving on a toothpick with marinara or ranch, I love throwing them into salads for an easy and delish lunch.
If you make these, be sure to share with me on Instagram!
