It’s a birthday cake…it’s a cheesecake…it’s…what is it???  Well, it’s a Persian Layered Rice Pilaf and I’ve had my eyes on this recipe for over a year now. I finally had the occasion to make it last weekend and I’m happy to say it was a success.  The cookbook I found it in had no photograph, but the description sounded so lovely that I had to try it. It is a very unusual dish and I guarantee your guests will be intrigued and more than a little bit impressed! You could pile each of the pilafs individually on a large platter or layer them, like I did and then sprinkle them with chopped pistachios.  It makes a beautiful accompaniment to grilled or roasted meats, or kabobs.  The recipe comes from Mollie Katzen’s, Vegetable Heaven.


 3 cups basmati rice, rinsed and drained

      I love the use of Beetroot in it – for both the colour and flavour. I have never seen any other pilaf recipes like it.
