  • 1 packet Continental Chicken Rice Value
  • 1 2/3 cup hot water
  • 1 large zucchini, grated
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup reduced-fat ricotta
  • 2 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Preheat oven to 200˚C (180˚C fan-forced). Lightly grease a silicone muffin pan with some oil. If using a standard metal muffin pan instead of greasing with oil line with paper muffin cases.
  • 2 Place rice pack contents and water into a saucepan. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Allow to cool slightly.
  • 3 Meanwhile place zucchini into a clean tea towel or cloth and bring up sides to enclose zucchini, squeeze over a bowl, or kitchen sink, to remove excess moisture from zucchini.
  • 4 Add zucchini and eggs to rice mixture, stir to combine. Divide between muffin pan, top each with ricotta and Parmesan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until set and golden.
