Italian Rice Cakes
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
