Peas and Rice – Recipe 2


1 cup dried beans (black eye or kidney)
2 cups rice
4 strips of bacon
1 small Portuguese sausage (chourico), cut in pieces (optional)
1 tomato (chopped)
1 large onion (chopped)
1/4 tsp thyme leaves
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp minced garlic
3 cups water



Soak beans in water overnight. Change water, add enough to cover and a bit more. Boil with with garlic until beans are slightly tender. Fry bacon until brown. Add onions and tomato. Add to beans. Now add, rice, sausage and remaining seasonings. Add three cups of boiling water. Simmer until all water has been absorbed.

(Note: I have revised the recipe slightly. Peas and rice can be tricky. If you add too much water you end up with a soggy dish. It’s better to add too little water and add more if you need it rather than ending up with soggy mess. But t his is a good recipe. For a change of pace, you can omit the bacon and sausage and add coconut cream or milk to give your dish a Caribbean flavour. But use kidney beans.)
