    Elmotoo's Note:

    Pigeon peas and coconut originated from the Samaná region of the Dominican Republic. It is a savory dish with a hint of sweetness from the coconut milk. Serve over white rice. Swiped shamelessly from the 'net for ZWT9. I personally will leave the cilantro out! You can get pigeon peas (gandules) dried, frozen or canned.

      This is a nice combination of flavors. Gandules are sort of earthy, but the coconut helped balance them out.

      I enjoyed this with the oregano and cilantro and the garlic. I enjoyed the rice cooked in coconut milk. I left out the chicken bouillion to make this vegetarian. Thanks! Made for ZWT 2013 by one of team Hot Stuff.
