  1. This looks interesting, I would try it but my husband and 16yr old son don’t like green olives. I think they make the dish what it is. Do you think you could post a recipe for the poutine?

  2. I am so with you. Whenever I return from vacation, all I want is whole grains, a bit of tofu, and lots of steamed broccoli. This looks terrific any time.

  3. This recipe caught my attention too. Your photos are lovely and it looks delicious!

  4. Love your shot of the basil bud! This definitely looks like good summer eating. And you don’t even have to turn on the oven.

    Oh. Man. This is the most delicious-sounding recipe I’ve seen all week (and I read a LOT of recipes). Between my kitchen and my garden, I have everything but the bay leaf. This looks like the perfect Sunday dinner.

  6. I ADORE YOUR BLOG… i want to eat everything you post… i love your dialogue of how you grew up and where your mother shops and ……love it all… thank you for this wonderful blog.
    sincerely, pam

  7. Thanks, Pam! I am glad you are enjoying it!

  8. I am adding this to the menus for the week. Thanks for the recipe!

  9. Love the photo with thyme, lemon, onion and olives. This looks like one hearty meal!

  10. I made this with gnocchi (purchased, not homemade), instead of rice. Delicious!
    Love your blog – thanks for sharing your food adventures with us!

  11. so yum! it looks like a healthier version of risotto. hate olives, but the premise is so lovely!

  12. I made this for dinner last night. It was delicious and it felt very wholesome and virtuous! I couldn’t find short grain brown rice so I used medium grain – it was fine. I also halved it and used pecorino instead of goats cheese. I’m going to make this again for sure!

  13. Leila and I tried this today and it was exceptional. It’s an unintuitive, unique mix of flavor, which makes it a recipe for awesome. The only thing even resembling a downside was that our thyme wasn’t flowering like in your pictures.

  14. Hey William! So glad you guys liked this. If only all of our thyme could be flowering… : )

    Yum! I made this for my new years eve dinner and it was even more delicious than I expected. Thanks for the recipe.

  16. this is such a great healthy-pseudo-risotto recipe! ive made it before with shitake mushrooms and olives (yum) and today i made it with some sauteed shrimp i added right at the end. a splash of cream adds additional richness but not loads of guilt. love it!

  17. This is phenomenal! I substituted quinoa for brown rice, and gran padano for goat cheese. Added spinach and shittake mushrooms. Delicious, you’re right almost risotto texture but much healthier! This will definitely be a winter standby. Thanks so much!!
