Hello sunshine!

I love picnics! What about you?

I remember doing picnics with my parents when I was little, but the truth is that age doesn´t matter. I think I will enjoy doing picnics for the rest of my life! Plus, I have the privilege of living in a wonderful place with incredible landscapes! But I am sure you also know a couple of incredible places for a picnic near your home.

My first picnics here were very practical. Basically, summer time +  sun shining = picnic. So we would grab a basket and put inside cuttlery, napkins, tomatoes, fruit and water, then we would stop in the supermarket to buy bread and some tuna cans and that´s it. The next step was just to find a place to eat.

As time went by my food habits started to change and I began cooking. In other words, our picnics are now slightly different. For example, last Sunday I went for a picnic with Hugo and my parents, so I prepared the following:

  • Rice bread bites
  • Carrot and oatmeal balls
  • Spelt bread
  • Peanut butter
  • Cocoa and almond energy balls

Neither the rain nor the wind stopped us from having such a fun picnic! And today I would like to share with you my rice bread bites recipe.

Ingredients (10 units):

  • 1 cup of whole rice
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of oatmeal
  • Salt to taste

 

Instructions:

  1. Soak the rice overnight
  2. Drain and rinse the rice with clean water
  3. Place the rice, water and a pinch of salt in a pan over medium heat
  4. Turn the heat all the way down when it starts to boil, cover the pan and wait 40 minutes for it do be ready
  5. Meanwhile, place 1/2 cup of oatmeal in a food processor and grind it until it becomes flour
  6. When the rice is ready, turn off the heat and wait for it to cool down
  7. Roll the rice into balls using hands
  8. Cover the balls with the oat flour and slightly flat them
  9. Place the bread in a preheated oven for around 20 minutes and that´s it!

 

I hope you enjoy this recipe! And in case you decide to do a picnic, it would be great if you could share your experience with me!

 

Happy living,

Natacha
