Ingredients

  • 2 medium-ripe plantains peeled, Blade C
  • 1 piece of whole wheat toast
  • 1 egg beaten
  • salt to taste
  • 3 tsp coconut flakes
  • 5-6 tsp goat cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place your spiralized plantain noodles into a food processor and pulse until made into rice-like "bits." Set aside.
  • Place your piece of bread into a food processor and pulse until made into breadcrumbs. Set aside.
  • Place a large skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Place your plantain rice in the skillet and toast until the plantain bits are a darker color and begin to slightly brown. When done, pour out into a mixing bowl.
  • In the bowl, add in 3 tbsp of the breadcrumbs, egg, salt, and coconut flakes. Mix to combine thoroughly.
  • Over a baking tray lined with parchment paper, mold plantain mixture into balls. Lay each down on the baking tray. Then, take a tsp of goat cheese, roll into a ball and stuff into the rice ball. At this point, you will have to re-mold the rice balls.
  • Repeat until all of the mixture is used.
  • Place the rice balls into the oven and cook for 13-15 minutes. Enjoy!
