Author's Notes

Soaking the beans overnight will help by allowing them to cook faster.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Remove any debris from the Red Kidney Beans (1/2 cup). Rinse with cool water, drain, and place in a bowl. Add the Water (2 cup) and soak for a couple hours, ideally overnight.
Step 2
Chop the Scallion (2), Onion (1), and Garlic (2 clove).
Step 3
Pour the beans and water into a deep saucepan and bring to a boil.
Step 4
As it comes to a boil, drop in the Scotch Bonnet Pepper (1), scallion, onion, garlic, Salt (1/2 teaspoon), Finely Ground Black Pepper (1/4 teaspoon), Ground Allspice (1/4 teaspoon), and Fresh Thyme (3 sprig). Place the lid on your pot and reduce to a gentle simmer.
Step 5
Depending on how long you pre-soak your beans, it should take anywhere from 40 minutes to 1 hour to get tender. They will plump up and the water will take on a lovely reddish color. I soaked my beans for 2 hrs and it took 40 minutes to get tender.
Step 6
Wash the Brown Rice (2 cup). You can traditionally wash it or place the rice in a strainer, then allow water to pour over it as you work your fingers through it. This method works like a charm and it so much easier to strain and place in the pot.
Step 7
Stir in the rice to the pot of beans. Add the Unsweetened Coconut Milk (1 1/2 cup). Bring back to a boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer, put the lid on the pot and allow to cook. Depending on your rice, it can take between 25 minutes and 40 minutes to fully cook.
Step 8
Remember to remove the sprigs from the thyme and don’t forget that scotch bonnet pepper. Enjoy on it's own or serve with your favorite side.
