Wonderful! Sesame seeds add a nice texture and flavor. I used a combination of butter and olive oil, chicken broth and about 1/2 t salt. I did forget to toast the sesame seeds first so sauteed with the rice and onion until they were toasty. Wouldn't change a thing! Thanks, Toby!
Simple and excellent. I used sesame oil instead of olive oil to give it more of an Asian flavor.
This is a good change from regular brown rice! I toasted my own sesame seeds in a pan first, then followed the recipe. I also didn't use fresh onion, but powdered, instead. To make it all vegetarian I substituted vegetable bouillon for the chicken broth. Overall, it was filling and healthy! I served Sweet and Sour Lentils over it and the flavors went together well! Thank you for posting!
This was a pretty good side dish and I have been trying to incorporate more brown rice and whole grains into our diets. I was hoping for a little more sesame taste but it was a nice step up from plain old brown rice. We served this with Mongolian Pork Chops from this site and sauteed green beans. It was a nice addition to the meal.
This dish is wonderful. I spruced it up a bit by replacing about 2 tablespoons of brown rice with texas red rice to add some color. Wild rice could also be substituted for added flare. Absolutely excellent texture with great sesame flavor.
SIX STAR ALERT! This recipe makes brown rice not just edible but delicious. I made it using butter and olive oil. I am not usually the biggest fan of brown rice but that may have now changed especially as my fussy preschooler also loved it [albeit with tomato sauce LOL]. I also appreciate the extra goodness of the sesame seeds. This is a vegetarian dream as it contains lots of the nutrients which are good for you. Thanks Toby!
This was good, but had surprisingly little sesame taste. I even used sesame seed oil for part of the fat. I made it in a rice cooker maybe that had something to do with it. It still was good and I would make it again.
This was delicious! Loved the flavor of the toasted sesame seeds. I left the lid on and didn't check it until the 45 minutes was up. It was perfectly done. I used the chicken broth and olive oil. Thanks, Toby.
