Chinese Gingered Rice

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mercy

If you don't like to sauté with sesame oil, you can substitute peanut or canola oil for the sautéing and then drizzle a bit of sesame oil in when you add the water and salt.

I doubled this recipe and used the rice cooker after sauteing the ginger. Turned out very lovely--nice way to add sophistication to rice!
