    Step 1

  • Prepare rice according to package directions. Allow to cool.

    Step 2

  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and milk; stir into flour mixture. Fold in cooked rice until well coated.

Avocado For the Win!

Ripen Up

Ripe avocados are key in any recipe calling for avocado. To speed up the ripening process, place unripe avocados in a paper bag with an apple or a banana and store in a dark place. Generally, avocados stored this way will ripen in a few days. Then, you can eat them right away or store them in the fridge for when you’re ready to make this recipe, and more.
