Cheesy Vegetable & Rice Fritters
Brought to you by SunRice.
As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been sharing a few recipes around beautiful rice. It was a little challenge that SunRice set for a few bloggers. There’s been cooking superstar recipes from Poh, making goodies using a Mystery Box Challenge, sharing our own recipes and a few other rice-y goodness.
It’s been fun, and I’ve loved the challenge. Rice is my fall-back food for the girls. I know they’ll always eat it, and it’s one food they never snub.
As well as receiving my own mystery box recipe, I also had to choose a few ingredients to go into a Mystery Box for Emily from Fuss Free Cooking. Keep an eye out on her blog to see what she creates!
The recipe I’m sharing today is one that I whipped up on a chilly Sunday recently. It was super cold, and we wanted something warm. I love, love, love brown rice, so that addition to these fritters made everything awesome. I love the trick of using rice from the microwave rice packs. It’s great to use in Fried Rice, and also in this dish. You can of course use any leftover rice, but this way is good if you don’t have time to cook and cool the rice.
CHEESY VEGETABLE & RICE FRITTERS
1 cup SunRice Microwave Rice, uncooked
3/4 cup tasty cheese
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 medium carrot, grated
1 small zucchini, grated
1/4 plain flour
Salt and pepper
Oil, to shallow fry the fritters
Salad to serve
♥ In a large bowl mix the rice, cheese, eggs, carrot, zucchini, flour, and salt & pepper. Once combined put aside.
♥ Place oil in a large frying pan, and place on a moderately high heat. Place balls of mixture into the hot pan, and push down into a flat fritter shape. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
