Pigeon Peas and Coconut (Gandules Con Coco)

Pigeon Peas and Coconut (Gandules Con Coco) created by threeovens

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.

    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.

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