Jamaican Rice And Peas Recipe

Rice and peas is a classic Jamaican dish. The local islanders refer to kidney beans as peas, so don’t be fooled! Traditionally, this dish is usually eaten with the Sunday meal. It is also popular in the Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago, and Barbados.

This dish is creamy and tangy with beautiful flavors of allspice and thyme. It is loaded with protein and fiber. 100% vegan and egg-free, this is a wonderful dish to share with the entire family for that Caribbean flavor.
