Jamaican Rice n Peas

November 23, 2009

Author Notes: We eat a lot of rice at home (in Nigeria) and I'm always in search of ways to jazz it up. So far, my tastiest rice recipes involve...coconut milk and this recipe is no exception. Rice, kidney beans and fragrant lemon thyme - a warming meal on any night of the week.Kitchen Butterfly
