Watching my mother-in-law, husband, sister-in-laws, and friends in the kitchen has been something I've been doing since meeting my Haitian-American boyfriend turned husband. Pre-Haitian boyfriend, I had tried Haitian food once from a restaurant, but I had never heard of sos pwa congo. As soon as I tried it, I was obsessed. It's still my favorite Haitian food dish.
As far as the rice goes, it has taken me over a decade to get it right! Follow these steps to master Haitian white rice (diri blan)

Add Sazon and 1 can of Green Pigeon Peas to the onion mix, I used one Sazon packet + a little salt. Let the mix cook together for 20 minutes.
Take the liquified peas and put them through a very fine strainer with a bowl underneath to catch the liquid. This is to get rid of the peas skin. The remaining skin (pic on far right) can be blended again and made into more liquid. Now add the 1 cup of green peas (from earlier) to the mix and then add liquified green peas for everything to cook.
I would love to know how you cook sos pwa congo! Let me know in the comments below.
