Instructions
  1. Wash the kidney beans. In freshwater, leave to soak for at least two hours, preferably overnight.
  2. In a pressure cooker, add the soaked beans, garlic, pimento berries (allspice), ginger and salt with about 1 to 1,2 L of water to pressure cook for 20 minutes. If you don't have a pressure cooker and still wish to use dry kidney beans, cook for 45-50 minutes.
  3. Once the beans are cooked, add the coconut milk, thyme, scallion, onion, and a whole pepper. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. At this point, taste to see if it’s seasoned to your liking.
  4. Wash and add the rice. Return the lid to the pot and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and let the rice steam until all the water evaporates. Turn the heat off and let the rice sit for another 3 minutes.
  5. Remove the thyme stems, scotch bonnet pepper and ginger. Serve!
