How To Make Jamaican Red Beans and Rice
Taste the tropical joys with our Jamaican red beans and rice recipe that’s assembled with silky coconut milk, red kidney beans, rice, scallions, and more!
In a medium heavy saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat; add garlic, scallion, onion, and thyme.
Sauté for a few minutes, then add the rice, beans, and stir.
Add the coconut milk, water, salt, and fresh pepper, and place the whole scotch bonnet pepper in the pot.
Stir to combine and bring to a boil.
Remove and discard the hot pepper, and continue to cook the rice until almost all the liquid is absorbed and just skims the top.
Cover. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 25 minutes.
Remove from heat and keep covered for 10 additional minutes to allow the steam to finish cooking the rice (do not lift the lid before that).
