More than bland patties
These round and flat food items are made from rice that’s been cooked, puffed, and dried. Expect a crunchy and crispy texture from rice cakes that’s also reminiscent of popcorn. Popular flavor varieties include plain (unflavored), cheddar cheese, cinnamon, and caramel. Their crackling texture also makes them natural substitutes for fat-laden potato chips, cheese curls, or even popcorn. Rice cakes make for light snacks that conveniently fit into sandwich bags, so you can easily toss a few into your packed lunches.
