rice and peas
1/4 cup kidney beans
1 clove of garlic
1 green pepper
scallion- 1 or two pieces, tops chopped off
thyme, salt to taste
2 cups rice
coconut milk or coconut [to make coconut milk]. Cut coconut in small pieces and blend in about 3 cups water in the blender, strain through a strainer to seperate the milk.
(I just use a canned coconut milk lol)
Wash peas and soak in 2 cups of water.
Pour peas and water in a pot with coconut milk, garlic and put to boil.
Cook peas until tender adding more water if necessary.
When peas are cooked add salt, whole pepper, black pepper, thyme, & scallion.
Let season simmer.
Wash rice if necessary, then add to pot. Use a fork to mix everything together.
Cook on a low fire until done- about 20-30 minutes
