This was really good, different, but good. I liked it even better cold the next day. I decreased the water to 1 1/2 cups. I cooked it for 1 1/2 hours at 350, then 1/2 more at 400, and the rice was just about right.
I made this recipe twice and both times it came out lovely! I baked it the first time and cooked it on the stove the second time, both times were a success. I ommited the yam, the tofu for guests who would not touch it, and the apple. I substituted prunes for raisins, grated the carrot, added onions. Even my husband, who detests cinnamon, is a fan. I liked the fact that there is no oil or marg. in it and that it is so easy to make! Definitely a winner.
