“This is a Jamaican dish I found in Extending the Table. The servings size is for a main dish serving, but this can also be a side dish for barbecued or jerk chicken. This recipe starts with soaking dried beans overnight, but that is not reflected in the times.”

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, soak the beans in the water overnight.
  2. Using the same water, bring the beans to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer until tender. Beans should remain whole.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the rice, and boil for 5 minutes uncovered.
  4. Add the rice. Stir, cover and simmer 15-20 minutes, until rice is cooked and liquid is absorbed.
  5. Serve with a green salad and fried plantains, or with barbecued chicken.
