Simple Rice Croquettes

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 184


1 cup short grain or sweet brown rice rinsed and drained
2 cups water
2 tablespoons sesame tahini or cashew butter
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 cup minced scallion
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
2 tablespoons olive oil


1. Place the rice in a medium pot along with the water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the grains are tender.
2. Transfer the cooked rice to a mixing bowl. Add the tahini, basil, oregano, scallions, salt, and parsley, and mix well. When rice is warm enough to handle, shape the mixture into 8 patties.
3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the patties about 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Serve immediately.

For a Change . . .
* For a somewhat exotic version, try Arame Rice Croquettes. Replace the basil, oregano, and salt with 1/2 cup Arame Condiment. Drain the arame well before adding to the rice.
