Recipe by Tatiana
"My grandmother's recipe. It's delicious and can be made with or without meat. It's also very versatile. Here I am using chicken, however you can use brisket, pigtail, oxtail, the list is endless."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (14 ounce) can

black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
green onions, coarsely chopped
cabbage, cored and cut into large chunks

This turned out so good although i didnt use the cabbage and I used Uncle Ben Rice. Thanks
It's okay, but the cabbage sort of makes it bland. I don't use the cabbage anymore. My wife is Guyanese, but she doesn't really cook, so my mother-in-law showed me how she cooks it. She uses West Indian curry to spice it up and works out well. Instead of canned beans, I use dried, not necessarily black eyed peas, just whatever I have. I have only been able to out do her once.
This is a good recipe though, but just not the same and not enough kick despite the Scotch Bonnet.
I added more and different kinds of bean, i.e chick peas. Great tasting and it lasted for days.
Great variation on beans on rice. I had 1/2 a can of coconut milk and cabbage to use up which is how I found this recipe. I'm only one person who is trying to eat more meatless meals, so I made a half recipe (my 1/2 can of coconut milk remember) except I left out the scotch bonnet pepper, the chicken and used the whole can of black-eyed peas for a 1/2 recipe. The coconut milk added that little something extra and the cabbage was just a hint. If you also swapped out chicken broth for veggie broth this would make a yummy vegan dinner.
Excellent but doesnt need chicken or cabbage. Add corned beef and pig tail.
Two words: comfort food. It's rich and hearty and will definitely make you want to curl up on the couch with a bowl of it. Really subtly flavorful and satisfying. I'll definitely be making this one again.
This recipe came out very good. My family raved over it and told me to "save the recipe" so I can make it again. I made it without the chicken or cabbage (served carribean chicken and the cabbage on the side)otherwise followed everything else exactly as stated and the flavor was wonderful. Thanks for posting Tatiana.
