Red Rice Pilaf with Mushrooms

On a recent trip to the Himalayas, I was captivated by the rich, nutty flavor of Bhutanese red rice. Since rice is a grain, some folks might say this recipe is not Paleo. I beg to differ. Strong evidence has recently emerged that our humanoid ancestors ate grasses for milleniums, which eventually led to cultivating those grains. And that humans were grinding grains some 32,000 years ago. This evidence is coming out years after the "Paleo Diet" was coined. Great! Now we can relax, and simply eat unprocessed foods. ...
