Jamaica is famed for this dish. Contrary to its name, it doesn’t feature garden peas but uses pulses such as kidney beans or gungo peas. The colour of the finished dish depends on which you use: kidney beans make it brown and gungo peas more green.

This is a simple but very tasty dish, originally cooked on Sundays in Jamaica but equally delicious any day of the week.
