servings: 36 to 40 mini cakes / preparation time: 1 hour



4 cups cooked rice

½ chopped onion

½ cup all purpose flour (whole wheat or white)

3 eggs

2 to 3 tbs grated parmesan cheese

salt and pepper to taste

chopped parsley and green onions



1 – In a large bowl, mix all ingredients by hand.

2 – Shape the mixture into little balls and place on greased baking sheet.

3 – Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top of each cake.

4 – Bake in preheated oven to 400°F for about 40 minutes, until the cakes are nicely browned.


Tips and Options:

  • The cake can be dip fried in oil. Baked is healthier but surely fried will taste better.
  • Enhance the flavor of cakes by adding fried bacon pieces, corn, boiled potato pieces, peas and/or diced mushrooms.
  • When making the balls, add a piece of mozzarella in the middle, before baking.
  • Serve with rose or marinara sauce, mayonnaise and/or ketchup.
