Rice Cakes

Hello everyone, it's been a while since the last time I posted... But I'm back and planning to offer you more ideas of healthy lunches for your kids.
Yesterday I did a recipe that is quite simple and doesn't require a lot of ingredients.

In a large bowl mix all the following ingredients:
1 cup of cooked rice (leftovers??)
1 cup of flower
3/4 cup  Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup of milk
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley (or cilantro, or thyme, or oregano)
3 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine everything well and make little croquettes using two table spoons. Put them on a baking tray covered with parchment paper and drizzle a little bit of olive oil (you can also bake them on mini cupcake trays). Bake them on a pre heated oven (350 F) for about 20 minutes or until they are well cooked. I usually broil them for an extra 2 minutes to give them a little color. My kids ate them for lunch, at room temperature, and enjoyed them a lot. They can also be eaten warm as a side dish, or even as an appetizer. Enjoy!!
