Pilaf with Vegetables

1/4 pound unsalted butter
1 garlic clove
1 small zucchini, diced
1 cup peeled, diced eggplant
2 large mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1 ripe tomato, peeled, seeded, and chopped
3 pimientos, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 cup long-grain white rice
1-3/4 cups broth

Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant. Add the zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, tomato, pimientos, salt and pepper and cook over moderate heat for 10 minutes. Stirring occasionally.

Add the rice and broth, stir and bring to a boil. Cover tightly and cook over low heat for 30 minutes. DON'T PEEK when all of the liquid is absorbed, the pilaf is ready to serve. (As eggplant and zucchini can produce variable amounts of water, 10 minutes more cooking time may be required.)
