Here is a VERY yummy spin on boring ol’ rice. And if you live in a household with asian-roots like mine, you get tired of rice. Well, I do. Thems is fightin’ words if my hubby heard me say that. Had this last night with the Szechuan Chicken with Broccoli. Lovely! Please make sure to use the sesame oil – it added such a delicate, yet delightful, flavor.
