Brown Rice Ginger Croquettes

I invented these with my daughter one weekend evening. We just started mixing things together and ended up with these yummy croquettes. The batter is quite runny and chunky so kind of falls apart. I wonder how the Brattleboro Food Coop gets their Indonesian Rice Cakes to stick together? Our secret was just heat--cook one side thoroughly before flipping, and they don't fall apart as much.

Recipe in brief: Mix together in a bowl tamari, cooked brown rice (maybe 2 cups?), grated carrot, grated ginger, 2 eggs, flour (1/2 cup or so), sunflower seeds, and 1/2 onion that you have sautéed. Form into rough patties and put on hot cast iron pan or non-stick pan. Cook one side thoroughly before flipping (peek to see if it's browning). Flip carefully and cook the other side.

Serve with more tamari for dipping.
