This is the most versatile recipe on the planet! I created this dish when I had a lot of leftover rice to use up. It is great for that, but now I cook extra rice, so I can make these Amazing Rice Cakes during the week. I add bacon, ham, shrimp, other vegetables and different seasonings. Just go crazy. You will love all the variations that can be made. Guess what? They are definitely company worthy and kids love them! Enjoy!

  • ·
    1 cup cooked, cold long grain rice

    1 egg beaten

    1 green onion chopped fine

    1/2 cup broccoli florets, chopped
  • ·
    2 tablespoons parmesan cheese

    2 tablespoons mixed jack and cheddar farm style cheese
  • ·
    salt and pepper to taste

    2 tablespoons grape seed oil and 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil to fry

    cocktail shrimp

  1. This is a very versatile recipe. It is both, a side dish or a complete entrée. You can make the cakes as written with just broccoli, or get creative and add a huge variety of different vegetables, shrimp, bacon, ham, and chicken. Change it up!
  2. Heat grapeseed oil and sesame oil in medium skillet over medium heat. (You can use olive oil, or peanut oil, too) You can also cook these cakes in an electric skillet.
  3. Chop broccoli and green onion
  4. Beat an egg with a fork in a small mixing bowl.
  5. Add the rice, broccoli, green onions and cheese to the beaten egg in the bowl and mix well. The mixture should be stiff enough to pat with your hands into a couple of cakes about 3 or 4 inches in diameter. If not, add a little more rice to it.
  6. Fry the two rice cakes in the hot oil. Gently turn when brown and fry the other side. When it is a nice golden brown, remove to a platter and keep warm.
  7. Here is how it looks! Enjoy!
