Ramadan – the red beans recipe

Following on from the last post, here’s the recipe for Trini style red beans –

red kidney beans (dark red preferably)

garlic (finely chopped or minced)

green seasoning (ha! got you there)

pumpkin (I have not yet gleaned the reason for this ingredient)

onion

tomatoes

hot pepper (scotchbonnet, or habanero or any other hot pepper)

(I might add coconut milk & spinach)

I am adding two links to two chefs whom I find invaluable when I’m looking for a Trini recipe:

  1. Assalamu alaikum Sister Sherica. Just to demystify the pumpkin in the red beans – it is meant to melt and thicken the gravy and add some sweetness to balance the slight bitterness of the beans.
