"A total winner in the a little bit of this and that cooking game. Great side dish or vegetarian meal. Fresh lemon for the win. Uses Tamari soy sauce, this is mild stuff, don't try regular soy sauce. And if you've never had Pigeon Peas, this is a great introduction. I get mine from the Mexican store."
