This is Jamaican style peas and rice that I created for a wonderful lunch for our Jamaican day. Very rich and flavorful.


  1. Drain the kidney beans and combine with garlic, water and salt to taste in a saucepan.
  2. Add the coconut milk, pepper to taste, scallion, onion, thyme and cayenne pepper.
  3. Boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Then add the rice and stir.
  4. Return to a boil, cover, reduce the heat, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until all the liquids have been absorbed.
