This World War II recipe was first published by Marmite and is a tasty Vegetarian alternative to regular Rissoles. I've rewritten the directions to be a little more precise and suit modern methods to a greater extent. Marmite is a British 'spread' and you can obtain it at an international grocery store in the United States. As a WWII ad for Marmite says "stock your larder with a few jars of Marmite now!". Enjoy :) Please Note: Preparation time includes Rice Cooking time!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the rice in vegetable stock (about 45 minutes or until cooked).
  2. Add mustard and horseradish.
  3. Add Marmite (I like about 1-2 teaspoons) Salt and Pepper to taste.
  4. Make into 'Rissoles' by rolling into 1.5 inch balls and then pressing lightly with a fork.
  5. Dip in beaten Egg.
  6. Coat in Breadcrumbs or dry Oatmeal.
  7. Fry in Vegetable Oil- either shallow pan fry or deep fry in a basket until crisp on the outside.
  8. Serve with Potatoes, Vegetables and Gravy for a full meal.

They definitely have to fry for a while to cook clear through. But the flavor is fantastic.
