Roselyn is one of our volunteers in our Healthy Living Kitchen. She grew up in Guyana and recently taught us how to make Guyana cook up rice.
This is based on a recipe taught to her by her Granny in Guyana.
It is very adaptable and you can use whatever ingredients you have available.
You will need a large saucepan to make this dish.
250g dried black eyed beans, soaked overnight in cold water (or 3 cans cooked black eyed beans*)
1 tbsp coconut oil
Handful spring onions, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 peppers, one yellow, one red and one green, chopped
2/3 can coconut milk
All purpose seasoning, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Vegetable stock cube
1 kg long grain rice, well washed
2-3 bay leaves
*If using canned beans skip this stage and add to the pan with some hot vegetable stock.
