Wash Rice in a bowl or under running water until the water from the Rice appears transparent to clean and add it to pot and stir in to combine with peas. Keep heat on medium.

After 12 minutes on medium, all of the liquid should have evaporated. Remove Scallions/green Onions and Thyme. Cover the pot and turn heat to low and allow to steam for another 8-10 minutes. At that time fluff up Rice and Peas and ensure all the liquid has been evaporated for a fluffy pot of Rice & Peas.
