I've never been a fan of pilaf. Tonight, Joe made a recipe that he's had forever, and it changed my opinion of pilaf. This was delicious. Joe's father had a heart attack nearly fifteen years ago. He changed his lifestyle, and he started eating healthier foods. Joe tells me that his dad loved this healthy recipe and they ate it "every other day." I doubt they really ate it every other day, but one never knows. It is good, so maybe they did.
