This is a fairly basic recipe and works well with or without the sesame seeds. But the seeds are quite important if pairing the dish with the Spicy Basil Chicken from this site. Together, with the recommended "Sautéed Snow Peas and Peppers," the three dishes make a great meal.
this tasted good if you have a bite of the spicy basil chicken with it. By itself, it was strange to have lime in my brown rice. Also, that much lime juice made the rice more 'wet' than I like. I don't think the toasted sesame seeds added anything to the rice.
Also made this with the spicy basil chicken. Sauteed snow peas and peppers too. Thought it was a great addition to this meal. Loved the tang the lime gave the rice. Will make again especially when I do kabobs and stiry fry.
The tartness from the lime juice works with the rice, which was a bit of a surprise. I also made this with the Spicy Basil Chicken and we enjoyed it thoroughly. You can read my full review at: http://bit.ly/HrJDS8
I made this tonight along with Spicy Basil Chicken and Butter-Roasted Carrots from the same CL issue. What a quick & easy way to fix brown rice, and it went so well with the Spicy Basil Chicken. It is now one of my saved recipes and I'll make it again.
