I really like finger food, it is fun and easy to eat and usually it doesn’t take a lot of time! And it is pretty food too, I wonder if it is because has a kind of doll’s house aspect about it that I find it so inspiring to make. The little 5 year old girl in me, sitting there in her pink tutu and her fairy wand, raging to get out and run havoc in my adult life. When I was a student, I remember that me and my friends were fascinated by a woman that we used to see around who dressed exactly like a 5 year old in the middle of her pink princess phase, long blond curls á la Shirley Temple and pink and crème clothes. I don’t think she was crazy, she just identified herself with that type of image. Nothing wrong with that but I just don’t have that kind of character that so I hope that making finger food will keep my inner girl happy and content. I know it makes me happy!

Mediterranean Rice balls - Gluten-free Finger Food

about 20

150 ml/0,63 cup rice of the sticky type
3 tblsp parmesan, freshly grated
1 whole sun-dried tomato, finely chopped
1 stick of celery, finely diced
50-100 ml/0,2-0,42 cup spinach, cooked
10-15 olives, chopped
1 tblsp sesame seeds, lightly toasted

– Cook the rice and add the parmesan while it is still hot so that it melts and adds to the stickiness.
– Mix all the vegetable ingredients and then add the rice. Mix well.
– Form small balls of rice, if you rinse you hands now and then in water, it will be easier to make them.
