Pan-fried patties with easy-to-make bean-and-salsa. Instant brown rice only take 10 minutes (included in cooking time). Suggested garnish: sour cream and scallions. To make fresh bread crumbs, trim crusts from firm sandwich. Tear into pieces and process in food processor until coarse crumbs form. One slice = 1/3 cup of crumbs. (Eating Well. April/May 2005)

Directions

  1. Cook rice, according to package directions, adding scallions, garlic, and thyme to the water.
  2. Meanwhile, cook beans and salsa in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until hot, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Turn down heat to low to keep warm or set aside.
  3. Remove rice mixture from heat and stir in corn, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Let stand for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
  4. Whisk eggs in a large bowl until frothy.
  5. Add rice mixture and mash with potato masher until mixture holds together, about 1 minute. It will be fairly soft.
  6. Shape into 8 patties.
  7. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  8. Carefully with a spatula, transfer 4 patties to the pan. Cook until browned and crispy, about 3 minutes per side.
  9. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  10. Wipe out pan with a paper towel. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and repeat with remaining 4 patties.
  11. Remove beans from heat.
  12. To serve, divide beans among 4 plates and top with 2 patties each.
