This is a favorite rice side dish and I always make extra to take for next day lunch.
|1 cup||long-grain white rice|
|coarse salt and ground pepper|
|2 tablespoons||sesame seeds, toasted|
|1 tablespoon||toasted sesame oil|
|1/2 teaspoon||finely grated lime zest|
|1 tablespoon||fresh lime juice|
In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Add rice, season with salt and pepper, and return to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook just until tender, 15 to 17 minutes. Remove pan from heat, and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
Toss rice with sesame seeds, oil, and lime zest and juice. Season with salt and pepper, and fluff gently with a fork.
