Journey Cakes and Mushrooms

This is my recipe for Journey Cakes. Start with approx. 2 cups of leftover cooked brown rice.

Add one medium grated onion.

Mix in 2 grated carrots, 2 cloves minced garlic, 2 knobs grated ginger, some diced green onions or chives, salt and pepper and 1/2 cup of flour. Mix this thoroughly. Then add two eggs and mix it again. (break 2 pieces off of the ginger...don't use as much as i show in the photo!)

Form into patties and fry on medium in EVOO.

Fry until golden on the bottom and then flip them over.

Drain on paper towels. The finished cakes should match my granite counter top!!!! These can be eaten warm but in true journey cake fashion you really should eat them right out of your pocket!

I want to pop one of those journey cakes (okay... maybe two!) in my pocket and go visit your garden. Your zone is warmer than mine and your plantlets are a welcome sight of things yet to come in my plot.
Hi Joyce, Thank you for visiting my blog. You are right there are lots of things I liked when I checked out your blog. I think we are kindred spirits. Your garden is lovely and I am excited to try some of your recipes. I am especially wanting to try the roasted tomatoes. We grow tons of tomatoes and this would be a welcome treat. I will check back in again to see what other goodies you have to share. thank you,

I once had johnny cakes at a bed & breakfast in new england... they were *so* not yummy looking like that! They looked more like grits.
