I thought this was a uniquely tasty rice dish. Loved the tangy, nutty, lime flavors in the sauce. Made as directed, the rice was overcooked. I think adding an extra 1/4 cup of water would prevent that next time. Thanks--made a filling and healthy lunch.
I have prepared this twice in the past week. The first time it was just so-so. I think that was because there was just not much flavor in the sesame oil. I went shopping and found much better sesame oil, but was not able to locate 'toasted' sesame oil. Anyway we all like this very much, and if able to find the toasted sesame oil, that may make another big change for the better. Thanks for the recipe....katie in the UP.
I really loved this. I used my rice cooker to cook the beans and rice together and they turned out perfectly. The dressing gives the rice a sharp tangy flavour. I could eat this as it is in a big bowl! We served it with some miso tofu, spring rolls, dipping sauce and wasabi onions - yum!
I would like to try this using most of the same ingredients, just altering the cooking method. I'd saute the rice in the sesame oil, then simmer it in chicken broth and finish as written. Might add to the flavor of the rice.
