Slide the casserole into the hot oven and bake it until the liquid is absorbed into the rice. There might be a few bubbles left at the edges, but the majority of the liquid should be gone.

 

Drizzle It

The final step is to drizzle the casserole with sesame ginger dressing.  This gives it that great burst of flavor.
