Stew peas is a very popular Jamaican dish. For those of you who love this dish but is not sure how to prepare it, just follow the following recipe and you can’t go wrong.  For those who don’t eat pork or may be on a low salt diet, this recipe uses an alternative to salted me.

2 stalk scallion

sprig thyme

1 pk. coconut milk

1 cup flour

2 cloves garlic

1 whole green scotch bonnet pepper

1 tsp chicken seasoning

"the Beatles didn't 'ave a monopoly on love, no-one does. It doesn't belong to John Lennon, it doesn't belong to Janis, it doesn't even belong to Jesus, love belongs to all of us. It's something we're all supposed to share," - Ami Bane, Pearls on the Road All work here is original and the copywrite of Angela Miller.
