Recipe Ingredients for Ernestine's Pigeon Peas and Rice

1 tbsp canola oil or corn oil
1 chopped onion
1 green bell pepper, chopped
15 oz (1 can drained) pigeon peas (16402)
8 oz tomato sauce
1 cup water
1/2 tsp thyme
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
2 cups cooked (?) rice (20037)

Recipe Directions for Ernestine's Pigeon Peas and Rice

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and saute the onion and bell pepper until slightly tender. Add the peas, tomato sauce, water (?), thyme, 2 bay leaves, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and simmer for 3 minutes.

  2. Add the cooked (?) rice and stir well. Heat for 2 minutes or until the rice is hot.

  3. Caution: Not sure cooked rice is used. Could this be minute rice instead? I have no idea how the 16 oz combined tomato sauce and water are absorbed. Beans are definitely a cooked product.
