Instructions
  1. Heat oil in saucepan, add the rice and zucchini and stir for a few minutes.
  2. Add stock and simmer over a low heat for 15-20 minutes or until rice is cooked through, adding water if required, so the rice doesn’t dry out.
  3. Stir through chives and cheeses, then allow to cool.
  4. Preheat oven to 190C and line a tray with baking paper.
  5. When rice mixture is cool enough to handle, roll into 16 balls about the size of golf balls and coat with breadcrumbs.
  6. Place balls on the prepared baking tray and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden and crunchy.
  7. Four balls is one serve.
  8. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days to reheat or serve cold.
