Here is the problem with this recipe as written -- it should be 1 Tablespoon FRESH thyme OR 1 teaspoon dried. Dried herbs are much stronger. I thought this was fabulous modified, though!

Simple goodness. Quiet and understated, and the perfect side dish for "Tilapia Scampi," also from this site. Did not measure precisely, but to my own tastes.

Terrific recipe with some slight modifications! I increased lemon to 3-4 tbl, reduced thyme to 1 tsp, added 1 tsp onion powder and some fresh garlic. My DH devoured everything left in the pan!...

This is a keeper - Hubby loved it. It isn't real lemony - you could add lemon zest to up the flavor but we really liked this as is. I did use fresh thyme - 4 -5 sprigs. Delicious and light!

This recipe is just a nice, fluffy white rice with a VERY strong Thyme flavor. I doubt I will make it again. I like thyme but it was too much and too plain.
