Quinoa and Rice Cakes

I was looking for some interesting Canapes for Xmas day.  Something I could prepare beforehand .  I had made some ,High Energy Rice and Quinoa, (posted here.),  for another dish so used this as the base. the resulting Cakes, patties or whatever you want to call them are fairly bland and will support any tasty topping.  They are very easy to make and can be frozen and reheated on day.  they are crisp on the outside and soft in the middle.

1  1/2 cups of cooked , mixed Rice and Quinoa
1/2 a large onion
2 large cloves of garlic
2 large eggs
1/4 cup of flour
1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
oil for frying

Zap onion and garlic in TMX and add 1 dessertspoon of oil and cook, 5 mins/100/ speed 1
Let Cool in TMX bowl.
When cool add all ingredients except Rice and Quinoa mix. Turbo twice or until mixed.  Scrape down and turbo once.
Add rice to bowl and mix in with spatula.
Tip into a bowl so you can easily scoop small amounts out with a small icecream scoop.
Heat a small amount of oil,(I used Rice Bran oil) in flat based pan and add small scoops of mix,  flatten with spatula and fry until golden.
Cook other side.
Drain on hand towel.
Top with a tasty mix of flavors.

Can freeze
Can use all rice or all Quinoa.
Makes 14 X 6 cm. cakes
