Transform rice cakes into colorful, flavorful snacks by topping them with delicious ingredients! Choose from turkey and tomato, pears with honey, cream cheese and cucumbers or a fried egg with avocado slices and sriracha!
We go through stretches in our house when we eat tons of rice cakes and we also have rice cake droughts. I was recently gazing into our pantry and checking out a bag of rice cakes that was looking sad and lonely. My slight obsession with transforming one type of food that miiiiight be labeled as “boring” into something colorful, exciting and delicious kicked in. Rice cakes don’t have to be dull! Load them up with toppings to turn them into flavorful and delicious snacks! I have about a million ideas for sprucing up rice cakes, but settled on four to keep this post from getting too long. More coming soon!
Watch this quick video tutorial to see how easy it is to make 4 delicious rice cakes!
Make any or all of these delicious rice cakes!
Cucumber Cream Cheese Rice Cake
This sweet and savory rice cake was inspired by one of my favorite sandwiches my mom made for me growing up: Cucumber Cream Cheese Sandwiches. If you’ve never tried this irresistible combination of ingredients, you must! It’s the best! And the seasoned salt adds an extra touch of delish.
Turkey Sandwich Rice Cake
Who doesn’t like a delicious, loaded turkey sandwich? Topping a rice cake with all of those same ingredients (minus the bread) allows you to enjoy the favorite sandwich minus wheat and tons of carbs.
Honey Pear Rice Cake
I had to throw in one sweet version! Pears, honey and cinnamon make the perfect sweet combination, especially when sitting on top of a crunchy rice cake!
Fried Egg Avocado Rice Cake
This is probably my favorite rice cake creation of the bunch. Runny egg yolks, sriracha and avocados are three of my favorite things. Perfection!
Are rice cakes gluten-free?
Most rice cakes are gluten-free, making them the perfect snack for people avoiding wheat (read labels to be sure). In fact, all of the ingredients in all four of these rice cakes are gluten-free!
