You can make these with any grain- rice, quinoa, barley, farro, whatever you like. And you can also use whatever veggies or cheese you like. I've made them with sweet potatoes, zucchini, or regular potatoes. If you don't like cheese, you can leave it out, but I think a little Parmesan, feta, or white cheddar add to the flavor. Here's what I used for this batch:
Veggie and Grain Fritters
2 cups cooked rice
1/2 cup finely chopped broccoli
1/2 cup grated carrots
3 green onions
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup bread crumbs
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Until everything is combined.
When ready, melt a little butter or oil in a pan and pan fry each patty over medium heat for approximately 5 minutes, then flip and fry for approximately another 3 minutes. When patties are done, you can serve them on their own or with a dip of your choice. I like them with feta dill dressing best, but you could use ranch or a little Greek yogurt if you prefer.
