    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    Tasty rissoles for lovers of Mediterranean ingredients - capsicum, garlic, olives, basil - which I have adapted from a recipe in the November 2005 issue of the 'Australian Good Taste' magazine. It was accompanied by a delicious low-fat recipe for potatoes: Crispy Garlic Lemon Potatoes. In adapting this recipe, I have suggested making 12 rissoles rather than the 8 in the original recipe. This immediately makes serving sizes more versatile. If you are watching your calories and fat intake, have just ONE rissole and more of the salsa. Posted for the post ZWT, Healthy for the Holidays Challenge! The fat content is probably still a bit on the high side, but remember the calorie and fat content is for the rissoles and the salsa! If you are not interested in making the salsa, make 8 rissoles (instead of 12) to serve 4.
