    justcallmetoni's Note:

    Although I'm posting this for the 2005 World Tour, this is for me a dish from childhood. My Cape Verdean mother made this often and served it with tuna fish cakes. I loved mine smothered in catsup. This makes a huge batch and we often served it reheated with more onions, linguica and fried eggs for breakfast the next day. Traditionally, it is made with kidney or lima beans but I remember Nana (my grandmother) making it with peas to accommodate my bean-hating aunt. Enjoy!

      I haven't tried this recipe, but I too am Cape Verdean and use a similar recipe, but use Jasmine rice, which is sooooo flavorful in itself, I also use a packet of Goya Sazon, and a packet of Goya chicken bouillon (pollo con tomate) for flavor rather than paprika, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste. It is absolutely delicious and goes with most anything. Glad to see Cape Verde represented on this site!

      My godmother is Cape Verdian, but we've lost touch over the years and the recipe has been in limbo. Thanks so much for posting it. Tastes as good as I remember.

      What a nice, different and savoury rice side dish! It reminds me of haitian "riz national". No catsup on mine, just as is to accompany ribs and roasted asparagus. Thanks for the nice discovery!
