One of my goals is to make an okara-based veggie burger. These are not them. They don't hold together well enough to withstand the pressures inherent in the life of a burger. They taste great, though. I'm not sure how exactly you'd want to eat them. Normally I'd say to eat something like this on a bed of rice, but these are rice. So maybe eat them with a side of vegetables, I guess. Maybe you could even fry them by the Tablespoonful and eat them with noodles (akin to spaghetti and meatballs, sort of, I guess).
This recipe makes five small croquettes.
Throw the following ingredients into a bowl:
1 scallion, chopped finely
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/4 cup okara
1 cup cooked sweet brown rice (I imagine that other varieties of sticky rice would work)
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 Tablespoon vital wheat gluten
1 Tablespoon tamari
1/2 tsp. garam masala
Combine ingredients thoroughly, making sure that there aren't big lumps of unmixed peanut butter or clumps of rice or anything else of that nature. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop out 1/4 cup of the mixture and form it into a thin patty (maybe 1/2 inch thick).
over medium heat in a pan. Enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan -- not so much that you're deep-frying the croquettes, although if you're really into deep-frying I guess you could do that. In any case, place the patties on the oil and cook for a few minutes, until that side is golden brown. Then flip them over and continue cooking until the other side is golden brown.
Remove from pan and allow to drain on a paper towel. Eat warm.
