While meandering the cobbled walkways in the seaside town of Portovenere, Italy, I popped into a bakery for a quick snack and ended up sampling torta di riso for the first time. It’s a type of rice pie common in Liguria and I saw both sweet (with cinnamon and sugar) and savory (with cheese) variations. It’s a great way to use up leftover rice and you can be creative with additions. I added greens to mine and find it’s lovely alongside a salad or a filling snack on-the-go.
