  • Summary

    Crisp on the outside, chewy in the middle, these rice cakes are simpler than they appear. Just mix brown rice with ground fennel seeds and egg whites, and panfry.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided, plus more for drizzling
    • 1 head fennel (about 1 pound with fronds), core trimmed, and stems cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons coarse salt, divided
    • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    • 2/3 cup water, divided
    • 1 pound bunch broccoli rabe, trimmed
    • 4 large egg whites
    • 3 cups cooked short-grain brown rice (from about 1 1/4 cups uncooked)
    • 1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds, toasted and coarsely ground
    • 1/2 cup fresh ricotta
    • Freshly ground pepper
    • 1/3 cup fresh basil leaves
