Never Eat a Plain Rice Cake Again—Here Are 4 Satisfying Ways to Transform Them

Last Update: November 20, 2023

Rice cakes—usually made with just rice and perhaps a touch of salt—sometimes get misconstrued as bland. But we see their simplicity as an opportunity, because when it comes to toppings, you’re only limited by your imagination.

To help get your creative juices flowing, we opened a pack of Lundberg Farms Organic Wild Rice Cakes, although you can also use jasmine rice instead of white rice, and spent an afternoon experimenting in the kitchen. Here are four favorite topping combos we came up with!

Breakfast of Champions
If you’ve only had mascarpone in tiramisu, you’re missing out! This sweet-savory combo is utterly irresistible.

Coconut Chips
Chopped Salted Peanuts
Sliced banana

Strawberry Fields Forever
Strawberries and balsamic vinegar are a classic combo. Add smear of ricotta and sprinkle of hemp seeds for a perfect breakfast, snack, or even dessert.
