A small History on Reggae

Spicy Reggae Rice comes from Jamaica’s popular music, Reggae, that came about in the late 1960’s. Bob Marley is the first person that comes to mind, when the word Reggae is been mentioned in any conversation. He was the first internationally known Reggae artist.

However, there were other reggae artists that are known to have paved the way for Reggae internationally. Not only Bob Marley, but also The Wailers, Peter Tosh, Toots and the Maytals and Jimmy Cliff.

Additionally, Reggae was originated from Ska and Rocksteady Genre. Reggae is connected to the Rastafari religion which developed in the 1930’s. In the 1970’s, Reggae music (the lyrics) was deeply influenced by the Rastafarian in Jamaica. Rastafari is an African religion. It’s a way of life and a movement that comes from several Afrocentric beliefs.

Rasta Colors

The Rasta colors are red, yellow (gold), green and sometimes black. The red represents the blood shed of the African people; the yellow represents the wealth of the African land; the green represents the vegetation of the promise land, Ethiopia; and the black represents the color of the African people.

How to make Spicy Reggae Rice

It’s all about flavor and spices when cooking this Spicy Reggae Rice.

Firstly, saute the vegetables and add the diced sausages afterwards. Add some water and then the Grace Cock Flavored Soup Mix or if you are using the Bouillon Cubes.

Secondly, add the sweet corn and rice to the liquid mixture with all the seasoning, sauteed vegetables and sausages.

Lastly, allow to boil so that the water will evaporate. Turn the heat on low and allow the rice to steam. Your Spicy Reggae Rice will be ready within 20 to 25 minutes.

Where to find Ingredients?

You can find all of these ingredients at your nearest Walmart Store. As for the Grace Cock Flavored Soup Mix, it can be found at any West Indian Store and at some Walmart Store too.

However, if you are not able to find it, you can substitute it for the Knorr Chicken Bouillon Cube or the Maggi Chicken Flavor Bouillon Cube.

Spicy Reggae Rice Recipe

Ingredients for Spicy Reggae Rice

  • 3 cups of rice
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 packet of Grace Cock Flavored Soup Mix or seasoning of your desire
  • 1 can of sweet corn
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 of a medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 of each color of a bell pepper (red, green & yellow), chopped
  • 1 stalk of scallion (green onion), chopped
  • 1/2 of a Hill-shire farm turkey smoked sausage, diced
  • 4 cups of water

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, add butter and allow to melt. Saute chopped onion, tomato, scallion (green onion), garlic and bell pepper.
  2. Add diced sausage. Pour water and Grace Flavored Soup Mix (or desired seasoning) and stir. Taste a little of the seasoned water, to know if it is your desire. If not, add some salt.
  3. As a Jamaican, I normally wash my rice before I put it in the pot. It’s a Jamaican thing, please don’t judge me (I just can’t escape it). Wash rice twice (this is optionally, you don’t have to do this step). Add the rice and sweet corn to the saucepan and stir. Let it boil for about 5 to 7 minutes or longer (just for the water to not be visible). As soon as the water has evaporated, turn the heat on low. Allow it to steam for the next 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. Taste rice to see if it is tender. As soon as it is cooked, use a fork to fluff the rice. Serve the rice while it is hot (to a temperature that you can tolerate) because no one likes to eat cold food… well, certainly not me.
