From the Test Kitchen

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.
