I guess I'm one of those women "who have moved from the country in body but not in heart"! Although I'm an attorney in a large city, my parents are ranchers. And, since they once grew rice, that's a staple of my cooking. Because of my busy schedule, I like dishes like this that can be easily reheated throughout the week. This was actually a soup recipe when I first found it. I needed a side dish, however, so I simply reduced the amount of water.
