GF DF Carrot Brown Rice Latkes
Ingredients3 lbs. carrots, peeled and grated
1 cup brown rice, cooked
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 orange pepper, finely chopped and drained
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp cilantro
1/4 tsp salt
InstructionsCombine the brown rice and a handful of grated carrots in a food processor and blend until a paste forms. Add to bowl and mix the rest of the ingredients by folding them together with your hands.
The latke mixture should be moist enough to form into a patty easily. If it is too wet, squeeze the excess liquid out between your hands. Scoop the latke mixture in your hands, pressing to shape into a nice-looking patty. Be sure not to make them too big or they will fall apart more easily.
Cover the bottom of a cast iron pan with oil. Heat on high for a few minutes, then drop a small piece of the mixture into the pan. When it starts to sizzle, it's hot enough to fry a latke. When the pan is full of sizzling latkes, reduce the heat to medium and cook until the undersides are browned (about five minutes). Turn the latkes over and cook another five minutes or so until each side is a nice, golden brown.
