This always goes well at pot-luck. Every ingredient can be changed depending on what you have on hand. So easy to make too.

Peas can be replaced by any bean on hand.
Any grain or small pasta can replace the rice.
Any combination of raw or cooked vegetables can be used.

This is great for using up leftovers too.
