Monkfish is a “for instance” here, and what I’ve made most recently. Substitute literally anything (hence the name: “rice with things”). If it’s something that can stand up to pre-browning (as monkfish can, as can almost any meat, many vegetables, and even tofu), do it. If not (tomatoes or flounder, for example), add when the rice is almost done. You can use brown rice, too; cooking time will double, and you’ll need more liquid.

We produce reported pieces, profiles, interviews, and rants about what’s broken in the food world (there’s a lot) and how to change things for the better. People sometimes tell me to just keep politics out of it. Respectfully: No. Food is political. We can’t and won’t ignore that.
