Jamaican rice & peas

Yield: 1 Batch

Measure Ingredient
1 small Coconut
4 cups Water
1 can Red beans
1 medium Onion
1 bunch Green onions
1 tablespoon Dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon Ground allspice
2 eaches Garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon Salt
2 pounds Rice



Take coconut out of shell and process or grate it in the water, then squeeze it through double-layered cheesecloth. Use only the liquid; throw gratings away. It works better if you let it sit for an hour or so before sieving. Cook the beans in the coconut milk for one hour (simmering). Chop onion and scallions and add with thyme, allspice, garlic, 1 tsp salt and 2 lbs rice. Add water to cover + one inch over top of rice and beans mixture. (use 1st knuckle to guess). Bring to a boil, turn down heat and simmer, covered, 40 minutes or until rice is done.
