Preheat the Cuisinart® Griddler® Grill Centro, fitted with the griddle plate, to Medium. Put the rice vinegar, sugar and salt into a small saucepan. Heat just until salt and sugar are dissolved. Once dissolved, pour mixture over warm rice and mix together well. Stir sesame oil, ginger and green onions into rice. Divide rice evenly into 8 separate mounds using a ½-cup measuring cup. With slightly dampened hands, form each into a flattened, round disc. Rub the vegetable oil evenly over the griddle plates. Place rice cakes on the griddle and brown each side, about 6 to 7 minutes per side.
Serve with grilled bok choy (recipe listed under Sides) or serve alongside a soy dipping sauce.
