Pigeon peas are tasty legumes that are popular in Indian, Caribbean and African cooking, and make a healthy addition to any meal. They have a rich nutty flavor and provide protein, B-complex vitamins, and minerals, including potassium. Pigeon peas can be used in a variety of dishes, like Arroz con Gandules, which is a holiday meal combining rice and pigeon peas. Try them in your own side dishes or soups for a boost of nutrition at every meal.
How to Cook Pigeon Peas
Put the pigeon peas in a pot over the stovetop and cover with one or two inches of water. Cover and cook the beans over medium heat for about 1 1/2 hours, until tender. Check the legumes from time to time to make sure they are covered in water. Drain the peas and serve or use them in your cooking.
