Thanks for the great recipe. I used it a dinner of a Caribbean club that I am a part of and it was a hit, the other members who are from the islands loved this recipe. Although I am part Bahamian, I don't kno much of the culture this was a great start into my journey. Thanks again
This is a delightful rice side dish. I could not find dried pigeon peas so I used canned, and also used chicken broth in lieu of the pea water. Went perfect with my catfish main course. After dinner, found the thyme sitting on the counter. Next time I hope I remember to put it in the pot. Thanks s'kat for a great recipe.
Tasty and filling. I added about 1 1/2 tablespoons of browning to make it a little more authentic.
It's definitely not a true Bahamian dish unless you use Kitchen Bouquet Browning. Bahamians don't eat it any other way... and I should know because I was born and raised in the Bahamas!
This was outstanding! We used regular frozen peas instead of pigeon peas and cooked them with the rice at the end. We also substituted chicken broth for the water --- the smell of this cooking was heavenly and it brought back fond memories of our Bahamian travels. We served it with Jerk Chicken and it was a big hit. Thanks for posting this!
I threw in some shrimp and we loved, loved, loved this. I think everyone who ate that night had seconds and some had thirds. Absolutely delicious.
