This is a go-to recipe for me now. Previous attempts with other tomato rice recipes have left me disappointed because they often include a metallic taste (both with canned & fresh tomatoes). I have prepared this recipe with both canned & fresh tomatoes & prefer the latter however, can just as well use canned when it isn't tomato season. Recently, I used half brown rice & half wild rice and the result was a deliciously nutty & slightly chewy texture - I loved it! Thanks, Merrill!

I mentioned arsenic in rice mainly in regards to children's health. Here's a link to Consumer Reports' latest research.

The eyes of a child. One forgets how bright and clear and shining they are.

This looks delicious! BUT...does anyone else worry about the high concentrations of arsenic in brown rice? We've stopped eating it. Only occasionally do we eat white rice, which contains arsenic, too, but not nearly as much. (Our source was an extensive article in Consumer Reports some time ago.)

Love Tomato Rice. Often bury chicken pieces in it. Now I want to try yours, with that Escalivada!

Fannie Farmer has a similar recipe that starts with leftover rice (yes!). I believe she calls it Parched Rice. There is much cheesiness, though, and fewer veggies. I may combine the two!

This looks great. It kind of reminds me of a Persian dish called Estamboli Polow, basically another tomato rice. Excellent stuff.

Well, I certainly can't show her any of these comments lest they go to her head! Thanks for the lovely compliments.

The rice sounds good and all, but mostly Clara and the little pink Osh-Kosh overalls are ridiculously cute.
