An authentic Creole dish, dirty rice gets its distinctive name from its appearance. White rice is cooked with spices and aromatics, which darken it—and imbue it with flavor. We’re using a combination of traditional ingredients like red beans and collard greens to create a wholesome and delicious vegetarian version. And what Southern meal would be complete without biscuits? We’re serving ours with a little homemade honey butter to add the perfect touch of sweetness.
