Like many families, we have a "finicky eater" at home and one who is "half-way finicky", yet this one was given the vote! It is super easy to make and makes a very versatile side dish.
It goes great with potatoes, rice, baked yams, you name it!
1 cup brown rice, cooked
1/2 cup cracked wheat, cooked to the consistency of rice
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp. marjoram
1/4 tsp. sage
1/2 tsp. coriander, powdered
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 medium red onion, peeled and chopped
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 Tbsp. olive oil
In a blender, process rice, cracked wheat, red onion and tomato with a little water till smooth. Scrape into a bowl.
Add the rest of hte ingredients and mix well until you have a nice, soft mixture. Form the patties and cook in a hot skillet barely "painted" with olive oil. If your skillet is electric, set it to 300º F, let cook for 15 minutes on each side or more. Serve topped with your favorite tomato "spaghetti-style" sauce.
