    FloridaNative's Note:

    This is a variation of my "Mimi's Dirty Rice" recipe, using healthier brown or basmati long cooking rice. Takes a little longer, but still very delicious. Use as a stuffing in stuffed peppers, or serve with a green salad. We like this in stuffed peppers, with some jack cheese melted on top.

      I've served this a half-dozen time and am a believer. I agree with JD; thyme has little or no place in this dish. My family loved it immediately. Albeit, a couple days after my first preparation effort, I rolled the leftovers into burritos for a quick weeknight meal. Perfect! We now make it only as a burrito filling--often. My entire family thanks you FloridaNative for posting.

      A very outstanding recipe that will become the staple when looking for a earthy rice. For my taste I would cut the thyme back a little or omit all together. Wonderful recipe... thanks for sharing

      Tasted amazing and smelled great as it was cooking. Made exactly as written with the exception of using long grain white rice, which turned out fine.
