( Ingredients and method )
This works perfectly well as a one-pot meal. If I were serving it at a dinner party, though, I would accompany it with something... I'm thinking of my mother's cold rice and apple salad, which doesn't seem to be duplicated online but is not entirely unlike this rice salad here. Chronic meat-eaters might find baked vegetables like this a good accompaniment to roast chicken (stuff with sliced apples? Or is that overkill on the apples... lemon might counter-balance the sweetness nicely).
** I haven't worked out the ideal temperature / time ratio. An hour was nooot quite enough at 180 degrees. Either up the temperature or extend the time! I have this problem with the spicy vegetable bake, too.
