Jamaican Rice and Peas

90 mins (prep 30, cooking 60)
8 ingredients
4-6 servings
My favorite rice. This is making rice & peas from “scratch”, you can use canned red kidney beans if you would like to. Also the coconut milk can be omitted from this dish….it will taste good... not just as good. Lastly, If you want a true spicy Jamaican food flavor, add a Scotch Bonnet Pepper to the pot the same time you are putting in the scallion and thyme….
