I'm from the Caribbean and this recipe is incomplete - that's why it tasted awful. Firstly it would have tasted better with red kidney beans. The beans needs to be half cooked first, then add the coconut milk, then season with escallions, thyme, salt, black pepper, 1 peg garlic, a few allspice. Then add the rice and cook until done. Try that!

It smell really good but was pretty boring. I even added coconut flakes to it.

This recipe is great, I added salt and pepper along with some chives and loved it. I served it alongside some jerk chicken for a perfect meal!

It was okay - kinda sweetish, but very little flavor.

Quick and easy. I used this as a side with some vegan jamaican patties and callaloo and a rundown that I had all prepared from scratch so such a nice and easy side was great.
