Brown rice with roasted sesame, a power food

I often eat a bowl for breakfast. It gives me a lot of energy, and I don't crave anything sweet for the whole day!

Makes 4 servings

2 cups brown rice

4 cups water

Salted sesame:
4 handfuls raw sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1. I use a rice cooker to cook the rice. It takes about 1/2 hour to cook, but let it sit for 1/2 hour more.
2. Rinse the sesame seeds using a strainer, drain well. Set the toaster oven to dark brown, spread sesame seeds on the pan, toast until brown and fragrant. Transfer to a bowl, cover with a lid to cool.
3. Grind the seeds using a coffee grinder.
4. Mix well with salt.
5. For every bowl of rice top with 1 to 2 teaspoons of salted sesame seeds. Chew really well for rice allowing rice to turn into liquid before swallowing. The combination of brown rice and sesame seeds is believed to cure a lot of diseases.
