Sticky & Cheesy Brown Rice Cakes
A great way to get your daily dose of whole grains is by eating brown rice. This brown rice knows as "sweet brown rice" is basically a sticky rice made out of brown rice. So, that means no empty calories, just whole grains that taste similar to sushi white rice.
I was happy to find it in the store and was very excited to try it! My kids loved it, and didn't leave a piece for dad... They were all over it, and I understand why. The flavor is mild, the texture is soft and chewy, and the bread crumbs create the perfect crunch. I served them as a side dish for my spicy soy curls. The kids dipped the cakes in the sauce and enjoyed every bite! I assure you that even the picky eaters around will adore that dish. Give it a try, and let me know what you think.
