*My fourth graders know all about “The Three Sisters” when it comes to Native American studies. So here’s a recipe using corn, beans, squash and a few other ingredients.
4 cups of cooked brown or wild rice (I like the wild rice.)
1 (8 oz. can ) corn (drained)
1 (8 oz. can) black beans (drained) *any favorite bean will do
2 cups zucchini (minced)
1/4 cup onion (minced
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
2 tsp. sea salt (extra for your taste)
2 tbs. olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1. In a large bowl, add cooked rice with all of the ingredients. Mix well.
2. Shape into balls. (usually do a medium shape ball, about 6 tbs. )
3. On a greased (a little olive oil) baking sheet, place croquettes.
4. Bake in oven for about 20-25.
*Rice should be moist and not dry. Use a toothpick as a tester.
