Rice and Peas

Rice and Peas created by LifeIsGood

This is a Jamaican dish I found in Extending the Table. The servings size is for a main dish serving, but this can also be a side dish for barbecued or jerk chicken. This recipe starts with soaking dried beans overnight, but that is not reflected in the times.

ingredients

directions

  • In a large saucepan, soak the beans in the water overnight.
  • Using the same water, bring the beans to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer until tender. Beans should remain whole.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, except the rice, and boil for 5 minutes uncovered.
  • Add the rice. Stir, cover and simmer 15-20 minutes, until rice is cooked and liquid is absorbed.
  • Serve with a green salad and fried plantains, or with barbecued chicken.

    Great rice and beans! I really enjoyed the creamy texture, due to the coconut milk!! I used Scotch bonnet for the pepper and fresh parsley for the garnish. This recipe takes a little bit of planning ahead, but it is worth it. I served it with fish but it will stand alone as my lunch tomorrow. I'm looking forward to the leftovers! ~Made for ZWT5 Epicurean Queens. Gorgon!~

    I've had Caribbean food out and didn't care for it. This was divine. I used canned gandules (pigeon peas) with the liquid, but everything else I prepared as written. I loved the aroma while cooking and I will make this again. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT5.
