How to Make Jamaican Rice and Peas

Step-by-Step

  1. Soak black eyed peas, drain, put in a pot with 3 cups water and chopped garlic.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, until the beans are almost tender, about 40 minutes.
  3. Stir in: coconut milk, thyme, scallions, chile pepper, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.
