Hey, is there any specific term for a dish of rice cooked with other stuff in it? I've always called the category "pilaf," but apparently that's technically incorrect, as tanaise informs me that a pilaf has to contain orzo or other pasta?

Basically I'm thinking of dishes such as red beans and rice, dirty rice, arroz con frijoles, biryani, tagine, paella, jambalaya, pilaf, fried rice, risotto, and so on. It seems like every culture has one--

(Right now, as part of operation Clean The Fridge, I am making one containing brown rice, diced sundried tomatoes, preserved lemon, kalamata olives, and almonds, and a fistful of red lentils. It smells awfully good.)
