  • 1 c. Diced red bell pepper

Directions

  1. Heat oil in pressure cooker. Add in garlic, onions and chili pepper; cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, 1 minute. Add in bell pepper, tomatoes, water, rice, coconut, thyme and salt. Lock lid in place. If using a jiggle-top cooker, set on a flame tamer. Over high heat, bring to high pressure. Lower heat just sufficient to maintain high pressure; cook 25 min. Allow pressure to come down naturally 10 min (if after 10 min pressure is not released, use a quick-release method to release lid). Remove lid. Add in cooked peas and cilantro. Stir well to distribute coconut. Serve topped with plantains.
