Rice and Bean Patties


1 1/2 cups white rice
1 can of navy beans
1 small onion
1 tbs sesame seeds (optional)
Dill, or other seasoning to taste
Salt to taste
1 tsp red pepper
3 Tbs flour
1tbs cornstarch
1 tsp paprika
Vegetable oil


1. Boil the rice.
2. Quarter the onion and place it in a food processor with the can of beans. Add sesame, flax seed, red pepper, seasonings, and salt. Chop in the food processor until it’s a thick paste.
3. When the rice is cooked, rinse it in cold water, drain it, and mix it in a bowl with the bean paste. Place the mixture in the fridge for about an hour to thicken.
4. In a small bowl, mix together 3tbs flour, 1tbs cornstarch, 1tsp paprika, and any seasoning you want to add.
5. When the rice and bean mixture thickens, use a spoon to take some and shape it in a thick patty shape, about 1 inch to 1 1/2 inch in diameter.
6. Roll the patty around in the flour until it’s covered.
7. Heat up a pan with enough oil to cover the patties. Fry the patties until golden brown.
8. Drain on a paper towel, let cool, then serve.
