This was one of the San Francisco Chronicles' Chefs Take on Summer to Fall recipes. It sounded good to me. I made some personal modifications and we loved it. Roast whatever fall vegetables you have on hand for this dish. The tomatoes are key, however, as they keep the rice from becoming dry. NOTE: My brown rice is a mixture of brown sushi (medium grain), brown sticky (glutinous) rice and brown basmati which I cooked in a rice cooker, I also used chicken broth instead of water.
