Brown Rice Veggie Cake

Savoury Brown Rice Cake

The season of festive food is temporarily over……..at least until Christmas comes. In the meanwhile, I thought I will share with you a brown rice recipe. Brown rice is definitely healthier than processed white rice. The refining process of brown rice only removes the hull of the rice kernel, leaving its nutrients intact. On the other hand, the polishing of white rice strips off its essential nutrients and vitamins. It is not difficult to cook brown rice – it only needs a little more time. Here is a healthy savoury cake that you can keep for up to 2 days in the fridge. You would have to simply heat it up in the oven or microwave oven to eat it.
