Description:

The Pigeon Pea originally hails from Africa and is now widely used throughout the Caribbean. This brown, oval bean is called a pea due to its small size and shape. The Pigeon Pea is about ¼ inch round, tan in color with light brown speckles. Blessed with a pungent flavor and mealy texture, it fades when cooked. Also known as Toor Dal, Caja Pea, Congo Pea and Goongoo Pea, the Pigeon Pea is very popular in the southern states of the U.S. Often paired with rice this Pea can be used anywhere you normally use Black-eyed Peas or Kidney Beans.

The slow cooking nature of these beans allows for a rich, savory broth to be created.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:
