Leftover Rice Pancakes

Rice used to be my most wasted food, I don’t think I have every cooked the exacted amount so I always have some leftover. Some people can be a bit nervous about reusing cooked rice, this is what I do to prevent the spores from flourishing which can cause food poisoning:

  • Run cold water over the cooked rice until it has completely cooled.
  • Store in the fridge for a maximum of 1 day.
  • Do not leave warm, cooked rice out on the kitchen side. The spores will germinate at room temperature.

These pancakes only require two ingredients so they are really simple to make. I use them as wraps, in the kids packed lunch, a side for almost any meal. They are especially good with a fried breakfast!
