I made this dish at Christmas for a family gathering, and it was a big hit with them, and with me - baking it in the oven makes it super easy, and it was delicious! Even the people who usually turn their noses up at brown rice were happy with the meal.

Pilaf originated in Persia; the word refers to any rice dish in which the rice is sautéed in a little oil or butter and then simmered with seasoned liquid. Variations take off from there—this version combines springtime herbs, asparagus and crab for a delectable main-dish pilaf. Serve with a glass of iced tea and a tossed salad.
