Rice flavored with scallions and sesame seeds pairs nicely with roasted chicken or fish.


  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 cup long-grain rice, (not converted)

  • 6 scallions, thinly sliced

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

  • ¼ teaspoon toasted sesame oil


  1. In a medium saucepan, boil 1 1/2 cups water with 1 teaspoon salt. Stir in rice; return to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer; cover and cook until rice is almost dry, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand, covered, until completely dry, 10 to 15 minutes.

  2. Fluff with a fork; toss with scallions, sesame seeds, and sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper.
