A question about a recipe: Thankful For Leftover Turkey Jambalaya

I have a question about the recipe "Thankful For Leftover Turkey Jambalaya" from aargersi. Could I substitute brown rice for the white, and simply adjust the cooking time? Or would there need to be adjustments to the amount of liquid, too?

I always substitute brown rice for white. The cooking time for the rice is the main difference. You will need to either cook it separately and mix it later, or -- what I do -- add the rice earlier. The amount of liquid required is basically the same.

you will very likely be playing w/ your liquid amount anyway, as recipe can cook up differently with @ batch, so adding liquid is no deal-breaker. You might also consider adding in some cooked wheatberries towards the end- for some fun chewiness. (I'm putting wheatberries in alot of things these days!)
