    Shuzbud's Note:

    This is a flavourful alternative to plain rice and makes a meal much more interesting. Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a side dish.

    For the tomato sauce

    To serve

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pour the stock into a large saucepan. Bring to the boil. Add the rice, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the rice is cooked through and the liquid has been absorbed.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, finely chop the basil leaves. Finely dice the yellow pepper. Peel and finely dice the onion. Set aside, keeping the basil separate from the onion and pepper.
    3. 3
      When the rice is done, uncover it and put the whole pan in a sink of cold water to cool the rice.
    4. 4
      While the rice cools, put the olive oil and onion in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Then add the yellow pepper and garlic. Cook around 5 minutes, until soft.
    5. 5
      Add the passata to the skillet with the onion and pepper. Turn the heat to low. Give the passata mixture a chance to simmer and thicken slightly.
    6. 6
      While it simmers, make the rice balls- add the cheese, egg yolk, flour, tomato paste, basil leaves and sundried tomatoes to the cooled rice. Stir it together well.
    7. 7
      Shape the rice mixture into about 16 balls and place them on top of the sauce. Allow to simmer for 20 minutes, until the rice balls are cooked through.
    8. 8
      Serve hot, sprinkled with parmesan cheese if desired.

      I enjoyed these yummy meatless treats. Use wet hands to form balls for no sticking. I did add oregano and parsley to the sauce also seasoned with black pepper. I doubled the tomato puree.
