Rice and Pigeon Peas
Pigeon peas, popular throughout the West Indies, are small, oval beans with a nutty flavor that make a tasty side dish. Look for them in Caribbean markets, or substitute kidney beans or black-eyed peas. We've used canned pigeon peas because they're more readily available than dried.
