Pigeon Peas and Coconut (Gandules Con Coco)

55 mins (prep 10, cooking 45)
12 ingredients
4-6 servings
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.
