I had some leftover mixed grain rice from the day before and decided to turn them into crispy rice patties. This recipe is great for leftover rice – especially fried rice or mixed grains.
The mixed grain rice I used was the Sun Way Yam and Mixed Grain Rice. It comes in a 3.3 lb vacuum sealed bag. It has a mixture of like twelve different grains – brown rice, oats, beans, wheat, millet, etc. and pieces of yam. It can be cooked by itself or can be mixed with white rice.
- 1.5 cups of cooked rice, warm or reheated
- 1 tbsp flour or arrow root powder (can add an egg instead)
- salt and pepper, to taste
- In a large bowl, combine the cooked rice, flour, salt and pepper. Mix well.
- Form the mixture into about 6 patties.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Place the patties on a greased cookie sheet (I spray it with PAM).
- Bake for about 5 minutes and then flip over and bake for another 5 minutes.
- Bake until the patties are slightly crispy brown on top.
If you like, you can cook the patties over the stove top instead:
Heat the some olive oil in a large frying pan. Fry the patties over medium high heat. Cook the patties on each side until lightly golden – couple minutes each side.
