The summary? I saw it. I filched it. I ate it. It was good. You might want to take a look and give it a go yourself. When I saw this earlier this week, I thought it would be a terrific dish for a raw, damp night. Which is what tonight was in Seattle. I walked the kids and a couple of their buddies home from school in 45 degree rain, thick enough for all of us to be cold and wet by the time we finished the three block walk. Blech (they were much cheered, though, by hot chocolate and a cookie). The sky was a shaggy grey blanket, spitting rain. It made me want to go back to sleep. All day.
Anyway, it is, indeed, a wonderful dish for a nasty night and is pretty flexible, to boot. I substituted shallots for leeks, since I had shallots and didn’t feel like buying leeks. I used some fresh shitake mushrooms and dried chanterelles which an un-named someone (who might currently stump around our house) bought by mistake. I used jasmine rice, since it’s what I usually have on hand. And chicken broth. Gimp-a-licious is not wild about tofu. Or mushrooms. Or spicy food. And yes, I made something that features all three. I'm a real people pleaser that way. But he liked it quite a bit (I sort of thought he would, actually). And I found it just happy-making. Mmm. So stank you very much.
