Rinse and sort the peas. Soak in water to cover plus one inch overnight. Adding water to keep the water level just above the peas, bring to a boil, skim, and then simmer until tender, maybe 1–2 hours total. While simmering and before the peas are fully soft, add the coconut fat/milk and the vegetables. Allow the water to simmer off until you have a thick stew. When the peas are soft, add salt to taste, if permitted.
