Be sure to use long-grain brown rice in this recipe. Use organic, if possible, as the bran layers can store residue of any pesticides used in the growing. Keep your brown rice in the refrigerator, especially in the summer, as the good, nutritious oils can go rancid. Concocting the bouquet garni is especially nice if you have a small garden. The herbs and the olive oil cut the inherent sweetness of the rice perfectly.
