Zucchini and Rice Patties

READY IN: 40mins
YIELD: 14 Patties


  • 34
    cup uncooked brown rice, should make 11/2 cups cooked
  • 2
    medium zucchini, coarsely grated
  • 1
    onion, finely chopped
  • 2
    tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 -3
    eggs, lightly beaten (I say 2-3 depending on the weight of eggs.)
  • 1 12
    cups panko breadcrumbs, flakes (Japanese breadcrumbs, you may have to adjust amount if using regular as they are of different textur)
  • 130
    g creamed corn
  • 14
  • Corn Relish and Cream
  • 250
    g sweet corn relish
  • 1 14
  • 2
    tablespoons chives, chopped finely


  • Combine rice, zucchini, onion, parsley, egg, panko flakes and corn in a large bowl, stir with a wooden spoon to mix well.
  • Shape into patties (I usually get about 14 patties from this.).
  • Heat oil in a large frying pan, once quite hot, but not smoking, add patties in batches and cook until browned on both sides and heated through. Drain on absorbent paper. I served mine with a dollop of corn relish and cream. Recipe follows.
  • To Serve: Place salad some salad greens on a plate, arrange patties on this and top with relish if desired.
  • Corn Relish and Cream.
  • I think this relish is quite delicious and goes great with the patties, I can't get corn relish where I am so I make my own. I am not sure how using a jar of store bought will adjust the taste, (as this is what I have listed for the recipe.) but I am sure it will still taste great.
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl. That's it easy peasy, This makes about 2 cups.
