    Hello and welcome to Creative Mondays hosted by Clairejustineoxox and JUDY H-J'S THOUGHTS where you can link up all your creative posts each week.


    Rice and peas is usually a part of  the Sunday dinner and on special occasions here in  my homeland, Jamaica.  Below is an easy recipe from

Serves: 4-5

1 medium sized can red kidney beans

1 can of coconut milk

2 cups of rice

1 small onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, chopped

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

1 tablespoon oil

1 scotch bonnet pepper (whole, do not chop up)


    Drain the liquid from the can of beans into a measuring cup and add the can of coconut milk and enough water to make four cups of liquid. Place liquids in a pot with beans, onions, garlic, thyme and oil, bring to a boil. Add rice and stir for a minute. Reduce heat to Medium-Low. Place scotch bonnet pepper on top of liquid and cover tightly for 30 minutes or until rice is cooked. Remove scotch bonnet pepper before serving. 

This recipe can also be made using other peas.
