Delicious Rice Pancakes
These simple, delicious, and healthy pancakes are a favorite multi-generational family treat at our house. When cooking rice for dinner, I double the amount so I have plenty for the main ingredient the following morning. Sometimes I even quadruple the amount and double the recipe, as the pancakes freeze well and can be quickly thawed for an extra special breakfast. Update: I recently tried this recipe with leftover cooked quinoa, and it made delicious crunchy pancakes.
Servings: 6 Preparation time: 30 minutes
Ingredients 2 large eggs 1 3/4 cup cooked rice (I prefer brown rice.) 3 tablespoons wheat germ 1/4 teaspoon salt (I prefer Lite salt.) 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Instructions 1. In medium-sized bowl, beat eggs slightly 2. Stir in rice, wheat germ, salt, and pumpkin pie spice 3. Heat griddle to 325 degrees. 4. Scoop mixture with a 1/4 measuring cup and drop onto the griddle. Flatten with the bottom of the measuring cup to create 3″ diameter pancakes. 5. When the cakes have browned on one side, turn over and cook until browned on the other side. Serve with syrup, honey, jam, or a mixture of half applesauce and half plain yogurt. Add the pumpkin pie spice to this mixture if you like.
I hope you enjoy this dish. Let me know if you’ve tried it and how it turned out.
