1 large red bell pepper
Small bunch thyme
1 tbs finely minced ginger
2 large, very ripe plantains
3/4 cup vegetable oil
Small bunch scallion (green part only)
Heat coconut oil in a 4-6 qt pot.
Add rice and toast about 4 mins until fragrant.
Add jerk seasoning, thyme, ginger and toss.
Add water, salt (to taste) and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until all water is absorbed – about 30 mins.
In a large skillet pan add a 1/4 cup from the 3/4 cup vegetable oil and sautée vegetables until translucent but not too soft.
Add diced sausages and cook about 5 mins.
Dice the plantains and fry in the remainder of the vegetable oil until crispy.
Fluff rice then fold in vegetables and sausage mix in the same pot.
Top with plantains then sprinkle with chopped scallions.
