Love this dish! I only use one clove of garlic and a tablespoon of dried thyme instead of fresh. Very filling and taste even better the next day for lunch with a small salad.

For a little spice, add one scotch bonnet when cooking. Place one bonnet (whole) while simmering. Do not slice, remove and discard when rice is done. Wash hands when handling please!

I love rice and peas but I never knew how to do it. This tastes like the kind in restaurants except better, I can save money now.
