#GKCooks: Century Tuna Risotto Balls

Breakfast, lunch, dinner and sometimes even for merienda, we eat rice. But plain rice is boring and fried rice can get old!

Here's another Italian healthy alternative that you can prepare with kids - Risotto Balls with Marinara Sauce!




Cooking Instructions

In a pan, saute bell pepper and onions until caramelized. Add the tuna, chicken powder and white wine. Stir to break chunks.


In a bowl, add cooked rice and parmesan cheese. Set aside. Let cool.


Form into small balls.


Dredge in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs.

Deep-fry until golden brown.


For the marinara: in a pan, heat olive oil. Saute garlic and tomatoes. Allow to simmer until thick. Add salt and pepper. Lastly add basil leaves and remove from fire.


This was another crowd pleaser! If I'm not mistaken (correct me if I'm wrong), this dish can also be called arancini. Forming the rice mixture into risotto balls and dredging them can be time consuming, especially if you're feeling a little OC like me haha!

I wonder what will be the difference if we use brown rice instead, aside from being much healthier? Anyhoo, I'm looking forward to recreate this within the week. I just need to buy canned tomatoes because I forgot to get one when I went grocery shopping yesterday. :p

I'm always open for your thoughts and suggestions. Just leave a comment below :)
