Ingredients

  • 3 cups canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 chive, chopped
  • 1 package Instant Sizzling Rice cakes
  • ¼ cup preserved radishes or other preserved vegetables, finely chopped

Directions

In a pot, bring the canola oil to 375 degrees. Prepare the miso butter by combining the miso, butter, and chives. When the oil is at temperature, fry each rice cake for 1-2 minutes, or until they've puffed up and browned a little bit.  Place the cakes onto paper towels to remove excess oil.

While the cakes are still hot, generously brush the top side with the miso-butter paste. Sprinkle the preserved vegetables on top (the butter will act as an adhesive).

Rice Cake Shopping Tip

Rice is enjoyed in almost all cuisines and is readily available globally. For a simple side dish to any meat or vegetable entrée, rice is a great complement.

Rice Cake Cooking Tip

Be sure you are using the correct type of rice needed to obtain the result you are looking for. Long grain rice stays fluffy and individual while shorter grain rice is starchier. Also, rinse all rice before use.
