Do not open the lid! Wash peas and soak in 2 cups of water. Your recipe’s have allowed me to bring that back! Thanks to you I can bring the islands to a place where there is none!

With me moving to Detroit, MI. Would you still boil the canned kidney beans for an hour with 2 cups of water?

Not worth it.

I was alittle nervous being the first time cooking it without a pre trial lol and it turned out AMAZING EVERYONE loved it cant wait to try More of your recipes .. thanks for making them easy to follow . 1½ to 2 tsp  Salt, to taste He fell in love. I have an over abundance of fresh thyme at the moment , how much fresh thyme should I use instead of the 1 tsp. That’s a good questions, but I have never done it and wouldn’t recommend using leftover rice for this recipe. Cover and let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Add the remaining 2 ½ cups sock and bring to a boil. BLAH. Many island dwellers refer to kidney beans as "peas," so don't let the title fool you. Over the thousands of years of rice’s existence it has managed to engrain itself (pun intended) in our diets. If you get a chance, try to make it with the real coconut milk, I guarantee you will be pleased. It should workout fine. they allow you to increase or decrease servings in a recipe. While your beans are simmering, you can now add your unsweetened coconut milk, and stir for about 5 minutes.

I will definitely make it again. (i know stew chicken requires unsweet milk) How will it affect the taste of the rice?

It takes so much less time than the way his mom taught me and it tastes even better than hers (don’t tell her I said that). We LOVE this dish. Can I use Jasmine or Basmati rice? I believe the marinating the chicken helped seal the flavors. Instead I like my rice and peas to “cool off” what it’s being served with. Slightly spicy, tropically sweet and generously spiced, this rice dances on the tongue and truly gives a full range of Caribbean flavors.

Thank you for sharing!

With all my friends from the islands it was very hard to adjust to american food.

Jamaican rice and peas—seasoned with the special trinity of thyme, scallion, and garlic—is a staple dish of the island.
If you served white rice with your Sunday dinner people would think you’re lazy. Tanya , This was such a perfect recipe!! So now I’m here starting my own cooking tradition with your help.

, As long as I have been coming to this website, I have been flubbing rice and peas, and don’t recall this recipe being so simple.

This traditional recipe is known for it’s fragrant use of thyme and coconut. I simply love rice and peas and cook them all the time. Any suggestions? Let your rice stand for about five minutes so that opening the lid doesn’t give you the searing hot steam facial that you did not ask for.

It tasted just like I remember it tasting! Is the traditional recipe using regular long grain rice? I wish I could help you but I’m really not sure. I just tried it! Thx 4 sharing!Cont’d blessings n Jesus name!

Hi Quisha, It went perfectly with my Jamacian curry chicken . OMG!!!!!!

Made this with my favorite oxtail and butter beans recipe. How much dried beans would I need to start with?

Thanks for reaching out. Just be aware that coconut milk has a richer coconut flavour, which is something I prefer.

I wouldn’t say that scotch bonnet peppers is a defining ingredient for rice and peas, it’s just a matter of taste. Thank you for measurements in your rice and peas recipe as although my Mum is Jamaican and has taught me how to cook many things, I could never grasp her fab rice and peas.

Add garlic, green onions, and thyme; cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. **FYI Your written recipe above did not include when the garlic goes in the pot. But try it again with less water and see how it works out. Tonight I’m making brown stew chicken.

Stock Photos from,, 123rf. Today I tried it with black beans, it was out of this world. Fay. Also I use brown rice which I know will require more liquid.

I use them and they work…. This delicious dish was first introduced to the island by the slaves that came from West Africa centuries ago. Cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid, reduce the heat to low and cook until the rice is tender.

Let me know if you try it out, and how it turned out. Glad you enjoyed the recipe! But I do know rice and peas can be made in a cooker – I have a friend that swears by it. 1 Small onion or 2 stalks scallion, chopped

I did try using this recipe in a rice-cooker – no bueno… The ingredients didn’t mix well, so all the seasoning etc seems to have floated to the top and stayed there.

If so, how would you modify it? God Bless. It is traditional Sunday or company meal.

Hi Brianna, you didn’t get the overload of island food.

I have been looking for this flavor for years.

The recipe has changed a little since then, by using ingredients found on the island, such as thyme, and pepper. Can you tell me what I may be doing wrong or any suggestions on what I can do the next time? Great memories I can relive through food. Thought I let you know so others don’t make that mistake. I’ve made it twice… even used different types of beans and it still tasted great! I use sprigs of thyme when possible but dried thyme is good too. I thought I messed it up with all the alterations, but it tastes amazing, albeit a little mushy. There’s no way you can go wrong here. Sorry to hear your rice wasn’t perfect. I look forward to trying your recipes. just reading the recipes made my mouth water . Thank you! Info. The colour of the rice will depend on the beans that are used. Thanks a bunch, Thank you so much fir this wonderful site, I will be sharing rice n peas today,Sunday, for my friends feel honoured to be sharing this delicious recipe along with plantain.
