Progresso Breadcrumbs

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 1/4 cup dried lentils, (2 ounces), sorted and rinsed
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cashews
  • 2 tablespoons Progresso™ dry bread crumbs (any flavor)
  • 2 tablespoons stir-fry sauce
  • 4 medium green onions, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 medium celery stalk, sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 1 medium carrot, sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons stir-fry sauce
  • Hot cooked Chinese noodles or rice, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat rice, lentils and 1 1/2 cups water to boiling in 2-quart saucepan; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lentils are tender and water is absorbed. Cool slightly.
  • 2
    Mash rice mixture slightly with fork. Stir in cashews, bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons stir-fry sauce, the onions and egg. Shape mixture into 4 patties, each about 1/2 inch thick.
  • 3
    Spray 10-inch skillet with cooking spray. Cook patties in skillet about 10 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Remove patties from skillet; keep warm.
  • 4
    Heat remaining ingredients except noodles to boiling in same skillet; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender. Add patties. Cover and cook over medium heat 5 to 8 minutes or until patties are hot. Serve sauce and patties over noodles.

  • Stir-fry sauce is available in many flavor variations from sweet-and-sour to teriyaki. Use your favorite to make this nutritious supper dish. If you don’t have stir-fry sauce, try bottled sweet-and-sour sauce instead.
  • Form the rice and lentil patties (do not cook) up to 24 hours ahead of time, and store tightly wrapped in the refrigerator.
  • Nuts are easier to chop when they are warm. Heat them either in a microwave oven on High for 2 to 3 minutes or in a conventional oven at 325° for 5 minutes.
