This delicious sesame recipe is flavoured with a little sesame oil and sesame seeds, which give this dish a great texture in contrast with the brown rice and quinoa. Sesame seeds are one of the most nutritious seeds. They have abundant health benefits and are especially good for your sex life and for your brain. This Japanese inspired recipe also has the very nutritious sea vegetable nori in it. This is a great comfort food recipe still loaded with abundant health benefits.

Brown Rice and Quinoa with Nori and Sesame Recipe

Ingredients

½ cup Brown Rice
½ cup Quinoa
¼ cup Sesame seeds (or  2 Tbsp, see note below)
2 Nori sheets – chopped
2 Green Onions – sliced
2 tsp Tamari, or more to taste
1 tsp Sesame oil

Description

Cook the brown rice and quinoa together in a pot with 2 cups of water.  Wet the nori sheets and chop up. Add this with all the rest of the ingredients to the brown rice and quinoa. Stir well and serve.

Note – The sesame seeds were quite crunchy and noticeable in this dish. I liked them in it but it is a lot and a little unexpected. You may like to try 2 tablespoons of them first and taste test, or rather texture test. I would definitely make it with the full quarter cup again next time for myself. Sesame seeds are a highly nutritious seed and I found the crunch of them to be one of the great parts of this dish, as did others I shared this with, and they taste great too!  Try it and let me know what you think!
