    - Carla -'s Note:

    Another favorite recipe from "Fabulous Fat Free Cooking" by Lynn Fischer. I sometimes like to make smaller 1/4 cup cakes to use as a side dish with a salad.

      These were very nice. I used brown rice and added the optional cumin as well as some cayenne, sea salt and fresh ground pepper...just to up the spice factor a bit!! I took - Carla -'s suggestion and decided to make smaller cup cakes by making them in a muffin tin. They turn out really cute...a different presentation on the old rice and bean theme...this made about 8 muffin cakes for me... OH!!! - Do note to let them sit in the tin for a bit after they come out of the oven to make sure the shape holds before you dig in; I ruined the shape of 2 not waiting (but not the taste!!) Next time I make them I might add a bit of low-fat cheese just to experiment a bit, but in no way is it necessary. Thanks - Carla -!! A great healthy recipe.

      these were very good. I used whole wheat diet bread for the crumbs and substituted a well drained 4 ounce can of chopped green chiles for the red bell pepper. they were not to hard to make and a great vegetarian meal.
