    This is from Jessica Seinfeld's Deceptively Delicious Cookbook. I have not tried this one, but am posting recipes upon request. The author indicates that the chicken can be left out of the recipe for a vegetarian option.

      I've made these several times, however, I've changed the recipe a bit. I agree wih others who have mentioned that there is a definite lack of flavor. I've added my own homemade secret seasoning blend to this recipe. I rated this recipe 3 stars for two reasons: #1 the lack of flavor I just mentioned and #2 they are a real pain in the rear to make. Each time I make them, I say that I'm never making them again. When I am making them you can hear me screaming from my kitchen that "I'm in rice ball hell!" Ask my husband :) I recommend doubling (or even tripling) the recipe and freezing a bunch because it's quite a project!

      I made these for my husband and we thought they were pretty good. They don't have a strong flavor, but both my husband and I liked them enough that I will make them again (mostly because I want to get more veggies into his diet and hiding sweet potatoes and squash in the rice balls seems to be working since he doesn't know.....sssshhhhh!). I do think they need some sort of dipping sauce. Next time I will make her homemade ketchup recipe with them. I will say I was somewhat disappointed in the nutritional analysis when I found it on this site. I expected more nutrition from a book that is supposed to be all about healthier eating and 77 mg. per rice ball is pretty high. Maybe that's why there are no nutritional analysis listed in her book?
