Healthy Rice and Spinach Croquettes


I am back in the South Arm Multi Cultural Community Kitchen led by Minoo.

As usual, three recipes were shared in the kitchen. The first recipe was Caldo Verde (Portuguese Kale Soup with Chorizo) which I had blogged before.

Minoo’s recipe is very similar with the one which I had blogged here, with the addition of fresh parsley.

The second recipe is a great way of using leftover rice. This healthy Rice and Spinach Croquettes makes great snacks for the lunch box.
