1 19 oz can of pigeon peas or red kidney beans (well drained and rinsed)
2 cups boiling salted water
1/3 of a block creamed coconut
1 cup rice
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 rasher of bacon or 1 tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. salt
Pinch freshly ground pepper

* In a pot cook rasher of bacon or melt the butter.
* Saute the onion and garlic.
* Add uncooked rice, thyme, salt and pepper; cook for 1 minute.
* Add drained beans.
* Add 2 cups boiling salted water.
* Add block of creamed coconut.
* Simmer covered for 30 minutes or until rice is tender (about 30 minutes).
* Remove from heat take cover off the pot. Let the rice dry out a little.

I prefer to cook the rice and peas ahead of time, allow it to dry out a bit and then reheat in the microwave just before serving.
