Rice Cooker Turmeric Rice and Pigeon Peas (Arroz con Gandules)

Arroz con Gandules prepared in the rice cooker

I began this site so I could keep all my recipes easy to find. I especially need a reminder to use equal parts rice and water in the rice cooker if I want the grains to be separate.

Here’s my fave easy rice and peas recipe: 
Equal parts (1.5 cups) rice and water.
One can of brown gandules WITH the liquid,
1 tsp each:
turmeric            onion powder         basil
salt                      garlic powder        vinegar

1/2 tsp each fresh ground black pepper and red pepper flakes.

At the end I stir in 1/4 cup green olives and 2 tsp capers, and I add more vinegar and tabasco to my plate.
