This week’s meat free recipe: Rice & peas

Rice and peas

Serves 4


  • 400g kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 400ml can of low fat coconut milk
  • 6 spring onions (sliced)
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • 200g long grain rice


  1. Put the beans, coconut milk, thyme, allspice, 4 of the spring onions and 100ml water in a pan, and bring to a simmer. Season with plenty of salt and black pepper.
  2. Rinse the rice a few times in a sieve until the water runs clear. Tip into the pan and simmer for 10 minutes over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, before lowering the heat. Put the lid on and cook for another 5 minutes until the grains are tender and the liquid has been absorbed.
  3. Fluff up the rice with a fork before serving and scatter with the reserved spring onions.
