Eating the Enemy : Stanfurd

Yellow Fever is on vacation this week, so the task of "Eating the Enemy" has fallen to me.  And by me, I mean AndBears, who did pretty much all of the work in putting this post together.

BAKED RICE PILAF WITH PINE NUTS

2 tbsp. butter
1 med. sized onion
1 (10 1/2 oz.) size can chicken broth
3/4 c. water
1 c. long grain rice
1/2 c. toasted pine nuts.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In saucepan melt butter. Cook onion until tender. Add undiluted broth and water; heat to boiling. Stir in rice. Pour mixture into casserole. Cover and bake 30-40 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. Mix in half pine nuts and stir. Sprinkle additional half on top and serve.

So there you go.  Tree bits for your meal, and lots of "nut-related" humor besides.  For you vegetarians out there (hi Rishi!), you can replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth.  I'm informed that many vegetarians don't have a problem with chicken broth, but there's a fair amount of debate amongst vegetarians/vegans on this issue.  The best answer I've heard:

You can eat broth. Most cultures would still consider you vegetarian. Don't be giving your power away to a bunch of crazy people. Make you own decisions.
