There’s nothing fancy going on with this dish, it’s just a simple yet delicious meal that can be thrown together on a busy weeknight. Or on the last night of a long weekend, when you’re trying to get all of your chores done before the work week starts so you don’t have time for an involved meal (the latter being my situation this evening).
Active, involved time for this recipe is really only about 10-15 minutes. The other 20 minutes is letting the rice cook/simmer, which allows you to go do other things if you don’t feel like standing in front of the stove (and when does anyone ever really feel like doing that?), so it was a perfect choice for tonight when I had to do the back-to-work prep and couldn’t stand in front of the stove even if I had wanted to.
