Jamaican Rice and Peas

I love watching the trees change color in our neighborhood. In Northern Cali, we get to enjoy the autumn foliage without bitter cold temperatures.

And it’s still warm enough for us to enjoy dinner on the patio.

For our “Good-bye to Summer” dinner, I tried out this Jamaican Rice and Peas recipe from the Seductions of Rice. My hubby worked on the London Broil with a Cinnamon Caribbean Rub.

Here’s what went into my paella pan:

  • kidney beans
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • garlic and onion
  • coconut milk
  • diced tomato
  • thyme
  • rice

The kitchen smelled awesome with the coconut milk and veggies simmering away. It’s a nice hearty dish with a taste of the Islands.
