Roasted Brown Rice with Gomasio

You can certainly cook rice successfully in a lidded pot on the stove, but it is so much easier when you have a rice cooker that does the cooking for you. To make rice even more flavorful, consider toasting it in the oven before adding it to the rice cooker. This roasted brown rice recipe is inspired by the recently revised and updated The Ultimate Rice Cookbook (Harvard Common Press, January 2012)  by Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann. Though the cookbook isn’t solely for vegans, it will quickly inspire you to use your rice cooker to prep your family’s meals.
