Pan fried, crispy and savory rice patties that are packed with fresh cilantro, garlic, red onion and cheese. Vegetarian rice patties are easy and quick to make, and are so flavorsome!

This is definitely one of the most delicious ways to use leftover rice… and all you need are basic ingredients!

The patties also work great as an appetizer, or side dish with meat, vegetables and fish. But I love to serve these patties as a snack with a fresh dipping sauce like a homemade garlic/yogurt sauce. so yum!

Anyways, give these leftover rice patties a shot. I’m sure you’ll love them.
