This one-pot rice is creamy and fragrant, and it couldn’t be any easier. It’s inspired by the traditional Jamaican rice and peas, a dish Ben learned to master while he was at university.


  • 200 g basmati rice
  • 400 g tin kidney beans
  • 400 ml


Rinse the rice in a sieve until the water runs clear, then transfer it to a large saucepan. Drain and rinse the kidney beans, then add to the saucepan along with the coconut milk, all-spice and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Strip the leaves off the thyme sprigs, roughly chop them and add to the saucepan.
