10 Ways to Make Rice Cakes Delicious
Whether you’re looking for healthy lunch alternatives, fancy reaching for something other than a packet of crisps, or simply want to pimp up your snack, rice cakes are the perfect solution.
Easily digestible and lower in carbs than many types of bread, rice cakes are so versatile, and you can top them with just about anything; making them perfect for snacking on but also ideal for creating a substantial and filling meal.
Here are our 10 favourite ways, both sweet and savoury, to make rice cakes delicious.
1) Classic Pb & J
Peanut Butter & Jam
A classic take on a PB & J sandwich, top your rice cakes with that complementary combination of peanut butter and jelly. A great way to curb those sweet cravings.
Salmon, Cream Cheese & Dill
For a fresh-tasting lunch that’s filling and delicious, try smoked salmon on top of cream cheese. Add a sprinkling of dill to enhance the flavour. This decadent topping makes a great weekend brunch alternative too.
3) Avo on Rice
Avocado & Chilli Flakes
Try some crushed avocado with a sprinkling of chilli flakes and sea salt. An excellent substitute for avo on sourdough or toast!
4) Chocolate & Spice
Apple, Chocolate Spread & Cinnamon
Get your sweet tooth stuck into a thin layer of chocolate spread, sliced apple and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Oh-so-moreish!
5) Breakfast Cakes
Yoghurt, Honey And Granola
For the makings of a great breakfast, swap a bowl of cereal or toast for a couple of rice cakes topped with yoghurt, granola, and a drizzle of honey. Add flaked almonds instead of granola for that satisfying crunch.
6) Rice Cake Bruschetta (Ricetta)
Tomatoes, Basil, Onion & Balsamic Vinegar
For the rice cake version of the bruschetta (we’ll call it the ricetta!), add tomatoes, basil and chopped onion with just a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and a touch of salt and pepper; full of tomatoey goodness.
Hummous & Roasted Red Peppers
Top your rice cakes with hummus and roasted peppers and enjoy as an alternative to hummus and pitta or as a healthy alternative to crisps and dip!
8) Fresh Fish
Tuna, Rocket, Spring Onions & Cucumber
Mix tuna with spring onions and a squeeze of lemon and top with thin cucumber slices for a fresh take on a tuna sandwich.
9) Classic Egg & Cress
Egg, Watercress & Black Pepper
An egg-cellent alternative to the classic egg and cress, layer your rice cake with egg (mayonnaise optional) and watercress with just a sprinkle of black pepper. If you like a bit of spice, why not add a touch of cayenne pepper for a bit of heat?
10) Sweet Cakes
Chocolate, Raspberries And Sea Salt
Another tasty sweet option, top your rice cakes with chocolate spread, raspberries and a sprinkling of sea salt. That delicious combination of sweet and salty never tasted so good.
The variations are endless, so there’s never an excuse to feel hungry or to struggle for inspiration when you have rice cakes in the house. And we can guarantee that these taste far better than that packet of crips you were reaching for and will keep you full for longer!
