bake brown rice as per instructions here or you can use steamed basmanti rice.

I always use a non stick frying pan for easy clean up.

saute either a small onion or shallot in teaspoon of olive oil.

Add rice and a bit more olive oil, mix well.

add about 2 tablespoons of light soy or until your rice changes to a darker colour.

Sprinkle 1/2 of toasted chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts pecans).

mix well.

only way I use to get my kids to eat rice.

That sounds yummy, but you are obviously not a Cajun from Louisiana. ;)

Chelby is right. ;) What we Southerners refer to as "dirty rice" is way different than the recipe you listed (although yours DOES sound good). Dirty rice has all kinds of cajun spices and usually includes meat and lots of other good stuff (peppers, onions, etc.).
