      4 ts Ground cumin
    1/2 ts Turmeric
    1/4 ts Ground ginger
    1/4 ts Ground cinnamon
    1/2 ts Freshly ground pepper
    1/4 c  Chopped parsley or cilantro
      3 c  Water
      1 c  Dried provolone (optional)
           -=OR=- Monterey Jack
           -=OR=- Muenster cheese
  RINSE THE RICE, cover it with water and set it aside to soak while you
  prepare the rest of the vegetables. Preheat the oven to 375F. Warm
  the oil and butter in a large skillet. Add the eggplant and onion,
  salt them lightly, and rapidly saute them to distribute the oil. Cook
  over medium heat until the eggplant is soft but not mushy, about 5
  minutes. Add the peppers, tomatoes, spices (including the pepper),
  parsley and more salt to taste. Stir carefully, combining everything
  well. Drain the rice and add it to the pan along with 3 cups water.
  Turn up the heat to bring the water to a boil, then transfer
  everything to a baking dish, such as a large, earthenware gratin
  dish. Lay a piece of parchment over the top, cover with foil, and
  bake until the rice is done, about 45 minutes. Toss the diced cheese,
  if you're using it, into the rice and serve. Serves 4 as a main
  course or 6 to 8 as a side dish.
