This soothing and simple casserole is a great family-style meal that can be easily modified by adding extra ingredients. To vary flavors and textures, experiment with different kinds of rice, such as fragrant jasmine or basmati.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 11/2 -quart baking dish.
In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add vegetables, garlic, bay leaves, dill, thyme and parsley. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables begin to soften, about 10 minutes. Add brown sugar, paprika and rice, and stir 1 minute. Add tomatoes and 1 cup water. Bring mixture to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish. Cover, and bake until rice is tender, about 11/2 hours. Sprinkle with pine nuts, and serve warm.
