Spinch and Fetta Arancini
2 cups white rice
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup grated parmesan
freshly ground black pepper
250 g (9 oz) chopped cooked spinach
100 g (31/2 oz) soft fetta, crumbled
3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
2/3 cup maize cornflour
2 eggs, lightly beaten, extra
1 ½ cups gluten-free breadcrumbs.
vegetable oil, for frying
Preheat the oven to 150oC (300oF).
Cook the rice in a large saucepan of boiling water until tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Place the cooled rice, egg, parmesan, spinach, fetta, pine nuts, salt and pepper in a large bowl and mix together well.
Roll the rice mixture into balls a little larger than a golf ball. Set out three shallow bowls: put the cornflour in one, the beaten egg in another, and the breadcrumbs in the final bowl. Roll the balls in the cornflour to lightly coat, dip them in the egg, then toss in the breadcrumbs (make sure they are well coated). Place the balls on a baking tray.
Fill a large saucepan with enough oil to cover the arancini and heat over medium-high heat (the oil is hot enough if a cube of gluten-free bread browns in 10 seconds). Add 3-4 balls at a time and cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Transfer to a baking tray and keep warm in the oven while you cook the rest of the arancini.
