    I don’t like dirty rice… because I don’t like rice. Can I have dirty quinoa?

    Also, we have Vegemite in ATL. Yet another reason to visit again.

    This looks so delicious Hannah! Next time you are craving a taste of home we should have a cooking party and cook something like this 🙂

    Do people really eat kangaroo in Australia??
    I used to love boxed Dirty rice when I was a kid but I don’t know that I’ve ever had a from scratch real deal.

    I laughed at the dirty rice and it reminding you of home in Australia. I think of dirty rice and it reminds me of home in the US. 🙂

    Your dish with its changes sounds so good!

    This definitely sounds like one for us. How would it work with black rice? Glad you are thinking of food from home (and everything else from home, too?)

    What a lovely idea – the recreating family recipes – and a great starting point. I love mixed up rice dishes (as I tend to call them, being the unsophisticated creature that I am) and I think if I made that Creole spice mix I’d add it to just about everything!

    A rarely-seen meat dish on your blog! 🙂 The spice mix looks delicious, and the grain medley sounds very healthy!

    That looks so delicious – I love one-pot rice dishes! And I bet all the spices would make it so delicious. Looks great for a healthy weeknight meal 🙂

    Omg awesome!! I just realised that I’ve got all those ingredients to make the creole spice mix in my pantry already — WIN. I’m going mix up a big match to store. Seems handy on fish and chicken as well. Sounds like you need to make a trip back home, Missy. Or better yet, convince your whole family to visit you instead, how fun would that be =D

    I’ve never had real authentic dirty rice! Sounds great!

  11. Choc Chip Uru

    This would definitely be perfect for me 😀
    I like ‘dirty’ rice so much now!


  12. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I loved the dirty rice that we had in New Orleans! Interesting that you grew up eating it! 🙂

    That top photo is just gorgeous – I love easy quick rice dishes – only had fried rice when I lived at home (I don’t think my dad was a fan of rice) but I really like this – would I be right in assuming that other spice mixes would work here? Or is that blasphemy!

  14. Helen (Grab Your Fork)

    Oh you just love to talk dirty don’t you. Heh.

    Also should the spice mix be in grams or mls?

    I’m too upset to learn about Kangaroos being considered food. Hey, how about that crack smoking mayor? He’s a hoot.

    Love this! Your savoury recipes rock, lady xx

  17. Hotly Spiced

    What a yummy and nourishing meal and I think it’s great that you’re going to share some of the meals that you grew up with. It sounds like your mother is a very good cook and how lovely that you cooked together xx

  19. Karl

    Kangaroo mince! No flipping way. I want very much to try it, is it special tasting? Gamey?
