Threes Sisters Croquettes



*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.
