from Chicago, IL I received a request for Haitian recipes. Here we are... Rice and Peas 1 cup dried red kidney beans 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided Freshly ground black pepper to taste 6 to 8 cups water 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 to 3 cloves garlic, peeled, minced 1 green pepper, cored, chopped 2 green onions, chopped 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley 1/2 teaspoon black pepper Salt to taste 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves 1 tablespoon butter 2 cups uncooked long-grain white rice In a large sieve or colander, wash the beans under running water until the draining water runs clear. Transfer them to a heavy 3- or 4-quart saucepan. Add 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the ground black pepper.Pour in 6 cups of the water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, partially covered, 1 1/2 hours or until the beans are tender but intact. Drain the beans and reserve the cooking liquid. In a large, heavy skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Add the garlic, green pepper, green onion, parsley, pepper, salt and cloves. Saute about 5 minutes. Add the beans and stir until heated through. Watch carefully for any sign of burning. Set aside. Measure out the bean cooking liquid and add enough water to make 4 cups. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. When it is very hot, but not smoking, add the rice and stir 1-2 minutes, or until the grains turn somewhat milky and opaque. Stir in the 4 cups of reserved liquid and water, the remaining 1 teaspoon of salt and more ground black pepper to taste. Bring to a hard boil. Reduce the heat, add the cooked bean mixture, cover tightly and reduce the heat to the lowest possible setting. Simmer 20 minutes, or until the rice is tender and has absorbed all the liquid. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary with salt and pepper. Fluff the rice and beans with a fork and serve hot. 395 calories (14% from fat),6 grams fat (1 gram sat. fat), 72 grams carbohydrate, 12 grams protein, 654 mg sodium, 0 mg cholesterol, 76 mg calcium, 8 grams fiber

In a large
sieve or colander, wash the beans under running water until the draining water runs clear. Transfer them to a heavy 3- or 4-quart saucepan.

Add 1/2 teaspoon of the
salt and the ground black pepper.Pour in 6 cups of the water.

Bring to a

In a large,
heavy skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Add the garlic,
green pepper, green onion, parsley, pepper, salt and cloves. Saute about 5 minutes. Add the beans and stir until heated through. Watch carefully for any sign of burning. Set aside.

Measure out the bean cooking liquid and add enough water to make 4 cups.

In a large
