Rice Cakes - Weight Watchers

Italian Rice Cakes
3 points/serving

 (Pic Heavy)

These rice cakes make a great side dish if you're itching to try something different and the best part is that they're low in points if you follow the weight watchers system.
I doubled the recipe so the pictures reflect this, but I will use the original recipe throughout this post.

Cook 1/2 cup of instant brown rice according to package directions omitting the butter

Mash 1/2 cup white kidney beans (rinsed and drained) in a medium bowl

Stir in 1/4 cup fat free marinara sauce

Add 1/4 cup of shredded part skim mozzarella cheese

 2tbsp of  Parmesan cheese

1 scallion finely chopped (I used an onion)

Stir cooked rice into bean mixture and season with pepper and very little salt

Combine 2tbsp of plain bread crumbs

and remaining 2tbsp of Parmesan cheese

Heat oil in large skillet

Mold rice and bean mixture into patties and roll into bread crumb and cheese mixture

Cooked until browned and heated through

Serve with your choice of meat and veggies
