Bajan green peas and rice
You'll find Barbados green peas and rice on all Bajan
menus whether its a wedding or the mobile food van on the
streets. However when it comes to the Christmas lunch menu
Barbados green peas and rice is a must have. Maybe this
has to do with the fact that traditionally this type of
pea was available in abundance.
In recent times however these peas are not as plentiful
which has led to increase cost at the market... actually a
pint of these peas can cost as much as $10.00 a pint in
the fresh food market. However despite these challenges
green peas remain an important component on the Barbadian
dinner menu especially during the Christmas
In fact it is so popular that Barbadian cooks going back
to our fore parents consider it unpardonable not to have
green peas and rice on the menu.
