If you’re familiar with Jamaican food you’ll know that rice and peas is actually rice and beans. I love this dish, it’s easy and tasty and it’s packed full of good things like protein, whole grains and iron.
Make a big pot and eat as a side with marinated chicken and fried plantains or on its own as a quick lunch.
1 tablespoon of canola oil
One medium sized onion, finely chopped (ideally the onion should melt into the rice. A food processor does a good job)
Brown jasmine rice
1 can of coconut milk
1 can of red kidney beans
