Red Beans and Rice

Stephanie Garvin-Owsley


Love this recipe. You can use either red kidney beans or pigeon peas. Parboil rice makes it easier to cook.

How to Make Red Beans and Rice


  1. Add beans or peas to the pot along with garlic
  2. Add your coconut milk, rice, salt, black pepper and thyme to the mix
  3. Crush the scallion (do not chop) and add this and the uncut scotch bonnet pepper,the pepper remains uncut so as to not make the rice spicy, just give it a subtle peppery flavor.
  4. Rice and Peas should be ready after about 40 minutes (exact cooking time will depend on the brand of rice used).
  5. ENJOY!! <3
