Betty Crocker's Spicy (Vegan) Rice Patties
(Makes 4 Patties)
1 Cup (uncooked) Carolina Brown Rice
1 Tbsp Osem "Chicken Style" Consomme
1/2 Cup Quaker Quick Oats
1 Medium Onion, Chopped
1/4 Bread Crumbs (Italian Flavored)
1 tsp Dried Basil
1 tsp Dried Oregano
1/4 tsp Ground Red Pepper (Cayenne)
1 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed mixed with water (to replace the egg called for in the original recipe)
1 Tbsp Ground Flax Seeds (just dump in the bowl)
1/4 Cup Soy Milk
Cook rice as per the directions on the package. After you bring the water to a boil, stir in Osem consomme, then reduce to a simmer.
While the rice is cooking, mix together oats, onion, bread crumbs, basil, oregano, red pepper, flax and flax mixture. When the rice is done cooking, add the rice and soy milk to the mixture and mix until everything is well blended.
Coat a large plate (big enough to fit the patties) with wheat germ. Place the patties on the plate and then cover with more wheat germ until fully coated.
In a large frying pan, pour in about an inch of oil and heat it. (It's hot enough to use when you insert the handle of a wooden spoon and it starts to bubble around it.)
Place the patties in the pan and cook for about 5 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for about 3 minutes. Cooking times may vary, so just keep on eye on them. When a nice light brown crust forms, they're finished.
