Bahamian Style Rice and Peas I love rice and I love peas, put them together and it’s a match made in heaven.  Bahamian style Peas and Rice is no exception. I’ve shared lots of rice recipes over the years on this blog as well as a few rice and peas/beans recipe such as Jamaican Rice and Peas, Chickpea Rice, Blackeye Peas and Rice and another version of Pigeon Peas and Rice.  This Peas and Rice recipe isn’t typically made with coconut milk like other version throughout the Caribbean but instead it cooked in a rich, dark sauce.   It’s similar to Trinidadian Pelau but different.  Pigeon peas and rice is cooked with browning or burnt sugar with aromatics such as thyme, bell pepper and onion which makes for a tasty side dish.
