Reheat them with a little water or broth to produce the needed starch.
Let cool to the touch and make the patties [Published by The Kitchen
Path TESTED: Based on the
time-saving tip, I used the idea (not necessarily the proportions). I
mixed 1/4 cup white rice leftover from Chinese dinner with 1/2 cup
cooked red lentils. Added the cashews, some crumbs, a little sauce and
some chives for color: omitted egg. Made 4 small patties; placed in
freezer while I made a vegetable sauce (1-cup total) with red and
green bell pepper strips, carrots and celery, spring onion and stir
fry sauce; salt and pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes; added
vegetable broth and cornstarch so that we each got about 1/2 cup moist
sauce. For the pasta, I made angel hair spaghetti tossed with shredded
napa and cumin seed. Meanwhile browned the patties with vegetable oil
spray and completed the heating in the toasted oven. Served 2 or 3. It
was delicious! -Pat H. NOTES : Stirfry sauce is a variation on
sweet-sour and teriyaki and may be labeled Asian gourmet or master
sauce. Or try a vegetarian oyster sauce or Japanese style sweet sour
sauce made with apricot and peppers. Serve the patties on a bed of
rice or Chinese noodles. Accompany with green beans or broccoli. Total
Time: 20 mins preparation and 50 mins cooking (see TIP). Makes 4
patties. *Recipe from Betty Crocker's Vegetarian Cooking: Easy
