Yellow Rice Cakes

When I was a kid there was one food that we had every single week: yellow rice. Even if there were other foods we couldn’t all decide about eating as a family, my mom knew yellow rice was one of our favorites and so it was always in our pantry. For that reason, it should come as no surprise that I make Zatarain’s yellow rice for my kids once a week as it has all those real, wholesome ingredients that are so flavor filled keeping the entire family happily full and healthy!

On those nights I want to put a new twist on one of our staple yellow rice, I make a unique side dish: Yellow Rice Cakes. With only a few whole ingredients like eggs and cheese it creates a side dish that my kids beg for me to make. I’ve actually seen my kids fight at the dinner table over who’s going to get to eat the last rice cake on the plate. They’re slightly crunchy on the outside, tender, flavorful rice inside and the perfect food to hold and munch away on. 

As I do my best to never let food go to waste, whenever we have any leftover cooked yellow rice I love turning it into this simple vegetarian recipe. If you try these, I would love to hear about whether your family enjoys them. And, if you’re still looking for more inspiration when making yellow rice, try this quick to prepare seared shrimp, peas and yellow rice. A perfect one pot meal!

    Can you sub out rice for quinoa? Thinking of trying but I don’t buy rice and think I could sub out for a few things I do have, also would oats work instead of breadcrumbs? I could blend them up to avoid weird texture. Thoughts?

    I give thanks to Dr onokun for helping me get a permanent cure to Uterine fibroid. I have used different western medication without any improvement, And I could not have a child of my own. I had heavy bleeding, frequent urination, a bulky stomach, and cramping. My bleeding is sometimes so heavy that I can’t go out. I go through 9-10 pads in a day. It is so uncomfortable. I have tried everything you can imagine because I’ve had my fibroid for 18 years but none of them have really worked. They just make you feel like you’re doing something but at the end of the day its not really much of a relief. People advertise all sorts of “Fibroid Cures”. I’ve tried all that you can imagine and they worked for a little while, but it’s not working out you have to keep on going. You cant really stop taking them. I got the contact of Doctor onokun from the testimony of people on the internet, and I contacted him through the Email and explained every thing to him. then he sent me his product which I used for 2 weeks. Now am completely cured so I really want to tell this to the world that there is a permanent cure to Fibroid. contact him on [email protected] or whatsapp: +2349064844957 he can help on any health issues
