"I threw this together in a hurry one day and loved the way it came out. It's simple, wholesome, and that little bit different. You can get dried wakame seaweed in health food or Asian specialty stores. Serve warm or cold."

I love this rice! Thank you so much for posting it. I make it without butter and salt, and it's just great!
