1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat the oil in a 2-quart Dutch oven or heavy pan with a tight fitting lid, then add the onion, carrot, celery, and pimento. Stir and turn the heat down to medium.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: This assertive dish is a perfect match for curried chicken or shrimp. Serve with a fruit ice to cool your mouth between bites.
