The Best Thing You've Never Tried: Microwaved Rice Cakes with Soy Sauce and Cheese

Alright, I'm probably about to make you never visit this place again seeking healthy recipes, but I'll risk it since this is probably my best creation ever (sad). I made this recipe up in high school as an after-school snack. I thought this would be the perfect follow-up after telling you about my soy sauce and cereal craving. All I can say is, don't knock it 'til you try it! 
I like to read poetry while eating salty snacks
Servings: 2

Ingredients
2 dashes of soy sauce
2 handfuls of Parmesan cheese
2 rice cakes (I use the Lundberg brand)
A pinch of cilantro (sometimes I add this, sometimes I don't)

Instructions
Place 2 rice cakes on a microwave-safe plate. Cover the rice cakes with Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle soy sauce over the cheese. Don't put too much, or you'll salt your brains out!
Microwave on high for approximately 30-40 seconds. I like some of the cheese to get kind of bubbly. Finally, add the cilantro. Enjoy it with fruit or a sour type of drink like 100% cranberry juice (I'm making this sound worse, aren't I?)

Yes, I realize this is not a healthy recipe. Soy sauce is obviously high in sodium and microwaves are sort of frowned upon by the healthy crowd, but I think it's good to occasionally indulge in your food fantasies; this is oddly one of mine.

Oh yeah, I dug up an old picture of me eating soy sauce on my cereal during our camper-van journey across New Zealand. Great picture of me, isn't it? yeah...

    1. You didn't fall for my fancy pictures then, did you? Darn. Don't worry, virtually everyone has told me they think I'm crazy for making this, but when I make it in their presence they keep asking me for a bite! Maybe I'll convince you yet...

      Happy weekend to you and Justin too!
