"I have been making "Rice and Peas" as us Jamaican's call it, for quite a while and this is really lacking. To start, you should soak your red kidney beans in cold water overnight. When you're ready t..." See moreo cook the peas, you would boil with it 1-2 cloves of garlic. Since the peas are presoaked, it should take approximately 45 mins to 1 hour to cook. After the peas is cook, you can add approximately 1/2-1 can of cocunut milk, 1 sprig of escallion, about 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 sprig of thyme, black pepper and seasoning salt (all purpose seasoning) to taste (about 1 teaspoon of each), 1 table spoon butter, 1 whole scotch bonnet pepper (for flavouring). You can add onion if you like, but it should be finely chopped. Allow that to boil for 2-3 minutes. Then you wash your rice, and add it to the mixture. Once the rice is brought to a boil, reduce your fire and allow it to simmer. This should give you a much better version of the Jamaican Rice and Peas. I make it every sunday, and each time I make it for guests they absolutely love it."

Anyone who has ever had raw coconut compared to the refined stuff will know why... I'll try to get my brother's version of this recipe (as made in Belize) much better and post it!"
"I changed this recipe up a whole lot- but in the end it turned out delicious. I made the brown rice seperately.

I poured in a can of lite coconut milk, some red pepper flakes, dried tyme, and some curry powder. Then I added a can of kidney beans and the rice.
