How to Make It

Step 1

Melt butter in a 3 1/2-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in rice, and sauté 2 minutes or until rice turns opaque. Stir in sesame seeds. Add chicken broth and next 3 ingredients; bring to a boil.

Step 2

Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook mixture 20 to 25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender; fluff with a fork. Stir in 2 Tbsp. chopped parsley. Garnish, if desired.

Step 3

*2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro may be substituted.

Step 4

Note: To make rice in the oven instead of on the cooktop, prepare recipe as directed through Step 1, using an ovenproof saucepan. Bake, covered, at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Proceed with recipe as directed.

I LOVE this rice! It has a very refreshing, bright taste. I make it exactly as written and it's my go-to side with grilled salmon, always to rave reviews.
