       Title: Jamaican Rice And Peas
  Categories: Veg-cook, August
       Yield: 1 servings
  
   1 1/2 c  Dried red kidney beans,
            Soaked overnight
       1    Clove garlic, crushed
         x  Salt
     1/2 c  Unsweetened coconut milk
       2    Scallions, chopped
       2    Sprigs fresh thyme
       1    Whole Scotch Bonnet Chili (I
            Usually use several
            Cayennes)
         x  Black pepper
       2 c  Long-grain white rice
  
   Boil the beans, garlic and salt until the beans are tender. Save three cups
   of the liquid, discarding the garlic.  Return the beans and the three cups
   liquid to the pot (if there’s not enough of the cooking liquid use water),
   along with the coconut milk, scallions, thyme, chili, and black pepper and
   salt to taste.  When it comes to a boil, add in the rice. Let it boil for
   20 minutes, then remove it from the heat and let it sit for 15 minutes.
   Stir it with a fork.  Do Not Eat the chili pepper.
   
   I've made this with canned beans, skipping the first step and just dumping
   them in with 3 cups water and some garlic powder, and everything else.
