This is how I love my brown rice. I always use short grain rice, adding about 1/2 cup more water than called for. With a splash of soy sauce, I'm in heaven!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, toss the rice with 1/2 teaspoons of the sesame oil to coat the grains.
  2. Add the water, cover, and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the rice is tender, about 40 to 45 minutes.
  3. Stir in the scallions, sesame seeds, the remaining sesame oil, and soy sauce to taste.
  4. Enjoy!
  5. Note:.
  6. Toast sesame seeds in a single layer on an unoiled baking tray at 350*F for 2 to 3 minutes, until fragrant and golden.
  7. Watch carefully, so as not to burn!

This is a very nice way to have rice. I liked the flavor and the only thing I might do differently is to add just a little more scallons. I used long grain rice and used 2 cups of water and the rice was perfectly tender.

What a great and easy recipe. I follow the directions this time but next time I make it I'll try a low-salt chicken broth for more flavor. Thanks for a great recipe I'll add to my rotation.

This is a great rice to have with oriental cuisine. I made this to go with Chinese Lemon Chicken. Added 2 teaspoons of soy sauce and then allowed everyone to add additional to suit their taste. Definitely a winning recipe.
