- Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

This will last up to 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
- If you're using homemade rice, make sure to rinse the rice until the water is clear before cooking it. This will help it from clumping together.
- It's super easy to make brown rice in a slow cooker: Coat the slow cooker pot with coconut oil, olive oil, or vegan butter. Add rice to the pot after rinsing. Add double the amount of water and cook on high for 3 hours.
- Whether using homemade rice or take-out, make sure to cool rice before using. This helps it from clumping together.
