Classic Sekihan: Japanese Adzuki Beans and Rice
Sekihan, or red rice, is a classic Japanese dish of Adzuki beans and rice. It is often garnished with black sesame seeds or a combination of black sesame seeds and salt (known as gomashio). It's typically served on special holidays in Japan, but recently has been enjoyed instead of white rice due to the high nutritional content of the beans, which are loaded in fiber, B-vitamins, protein, minerals and polyphenols.
