I'm from the Caribbean and this recipe is incomplete - that's why it tasted awful. Firstly it would have tasted better with red kidney beans. The beans needs to be half cooked first then add the coconut milk then season with escallions thyme salt black pepper 1 peg garlic a few allspice. Then add the rice and cook until done. Try that!

Quick and easy. I used this as a side with some vegan jamaican patties and callaloo and a rundown that I had all prepared from scratch so such a nice and easy side was great. Read More

I make a lot of different rice side dishes and this one so far has been the family favorite. I also added salt and pepper to taste (which should be a given) and I pretty much eyeballed the coconut milk and I also used the liquid from the blackeye peas in the rice as well as a diced onion. My husband said so far this and spinach rice is by far his favorite Read More
