This recipe comes from Heather at beauty that moves. The rice patties are delicious. We've made a lot of patties over the years, from soyburgers to grainburgers, and these are the best we've ever tasted! Her recipe follows with my notes in parentheses. Tom puts tamari on his and I use either leftover tomato sauce or a little catsup.
Brown Rice Patties
3 cups cooked brown rice (I used short grain)
1 cup grated carrot, grated in food processor
1 medium onion, grated in food processor (I used the hand grater)
2 cloves minced garlic, minced in food processor (I put garlic through the press)
1 t salt (I left out both the salt and pepper, and seasoned them after cooking)
½ t pepper
½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
Vegetable oil of your liking for frying (I used olive oil)
If you do not have a food processor you can use a box grater instead. Just make sure any onion juice makes it into the bowl, lots of flavor there!
Combine all ingredients except the oil. (I whisked the eggs, and then added everything else to them) If you have the time to make this in advance and let it sit for a bit the garlic and onion flavors will blend even more, but it's not necessary, just nice. If the patties don’t hold together because they are too dry then add another egg. If they are too wet add a little flour.
Heat a frying pan or griddle on med - med/high heat until hot and add oil. (I used the electric frying pan)
Use a ¼ cup measuring cup to scoop out the rice mixture and gently lay them on the frying pan.
Use the back side of the measuring cup to flatten out each patty.
Cook until golden brown on each side.
You might want to keep the oven on 250 (mine was at 200) with a baking sheet (and I used the plate in the photo) in there to put the finished ones on as you cook the rest. Enjoy!
Addendum: I now sauté lightly the onions and garlic before mixing them in.
