Oven-baked Leftover Rice and Mushroom Cakes and Herb Yogurt

I don’t like to waste food and even more I hate to throw away any food. When this happens I always think that there are people who don’t have anything to eat and here I am throwing away food. It doesn’t happen often but when it does guilt immediately strikes in… Does it happen to you too?
To avoid that I cook enough only for one meal or one day. I cook more if I know I am going to be busy. This is working fine for me and I am happy I am not throwing anything away.
When I have leftovers like rice or pasta, I think of the way to create delicious and nutritious meal. So when I had rice left from the dinner couple of days ago, straight away I thought about rice cakes. They are easy to prepare, don’t require a lot of ingredients and still very delicious. And most important they are hit in our house.
I hope you will enjoy these rice cakes as much I we did!
