Red Rice Pilaf, page 461

At Mark Bittman’s suggestion I made red rice pilaf to go with the pozole with pork and hominy. It sounded simple enough and I knew it would be a great side with the dish.

The recipe suggests diced tomatoes which I thought I had in my pantry. Turned out I had whole canned tomatoes or tomato sauce. I decided to use the tomato sauce because a) it was the right quantity and b) I never use the stuff and wanted to get rid of it. This was probably a better choice for us than the diced tomatoes because of Bryan’s aversion to tomatoes. He’s gotten a lot better about them, but having the tomato flavor without seeing it prevented any arguments. We were both happy.
