    I was reading this and it sounds so delicious Looking forward to making these certainly a healthier variation to an Arancini Italian Rice Balls !
    I was thinking maybe giving a nutty sensation rolling them in to Sesame seeds .Prior to baking and using the LSA mixture Linseed Almond Meal and Sunflower instead Of
    Almond Meal on its own ! –
    This would make a delicious Vegetarian dish Thanks ! Lee / CreativeLee
