Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl combine cooked rice, dried fruit, almonds, egg yolk, chia seeds, salt, vanilla, and nutmeg. In a small mixing bowl beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Fold beaten egg whites into rice mixture.

  • In a medium nonstick skillet heat 1 1/2 teaspoons of the butter and 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium heat. Using ¼ cup mixture for each fritter, drop four mounds of the rice mixture into skillet; flatten to 1/2-inch thickness. Cook about 6 minutes or until golden, turning once. Transfer to a serving platter; keep warm. Repeat with the remaining butter, oil, and rice mixture. Serve fritters with jam.
