Italian cauliflower rice balls (arancini)

ITALIAN CAULIFLOWER RICE BALLS ( ARANCINI)

So honestly I didn’t even know what these were until I noticed them on a menu last week. I started researching a bit and came across a recipe from skinny taste that I adapted. They were delicious! I made a fairly large batch. You can cut in half if you want.

INGREDIENTS:
-5 Italian sausage links- cut into tiny pieces, casing removed if you want
-2 bags of frozen cauliflower ( 32 ounces total) I use the trader Joe’s organic
-¼ cup of marinara
-½ cup mozzarella
-¼ cup parmesan
-2 eggs
-¼-½cup of almond flour or breadcrumbs

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook cauliflower rice in microwave and squeeze all excess water. I actually use a Nut bag for this. nut bag

2. In a medium skillet, cook the sausage about 4-5 minutes. Add the cauliflower
rice and marinara and cook another 4-5 minutes.

3. Remove from heat and add the mozzarella. Let it cool a bit. Place eggs in one
bowl and almond flour and parmesan in another.

5. Use a ¼ measuring cup and scoop the mixture and place onto a parchment
Lined baking sheet. Brush each ball with egg and then almond flour mixture.
You can roll them into balls and coat them that way as well. Bake about 20
minutes.
