Tasty Vegetarian Mashed Yams.

Tasty Vegetarian Mashed Yams.

Did you know that the tuber most people outside the Caribbean call yams are really a milder sweet potato? On the islands we have several varieties of yams and in this recipe I’ll be using Kush Kush, which is probably one of the more harder varieties to source. I recall as a young fella on […]

Stewed Pumpkin With Shrimp.

Stewed Pumpkin With Shrimp.

Like okra, pumpkin is one of those things I’m only just starting to really appreciate. Pumpkin is heavily used throughout the Caribbean to add extra body to stews and soups, in desserts like cassava pone and how could one forget the classic pumpkin rice. However ever since my mom made pumpkin with shrimp a few […]

Ital Soup A Vegetarian Delight.

Ital Soup A Vegetarian Delight.

I’ll be honest and confess that I have little experience cooking Ital food (no salt, no meat.. usually not for me), but I’ve had several requests over the past few months and a friend of mine who’s a practicing Rastafarian commented that I’m not showing him much love with my offerings. So with a little […]

Rich And Creamy Caribbean Pumpkin Rice.

Rich And Creamy Caribbean Pumpkin Rice.

Pumpkin rice rice is a dish I only just started to appreciate after having it at an “Island Grill” fast food joint in Kingston,  just over a year ago. Though that pumpkin rice was rather bland, it worked well with the side of spicy jerk chicken and creamy coleslaw or maybe I was terribly hungry […]

Cheesy Mashed Cassava.

Cheesy Mashed Cassava.

After posting the Guinness Braised Oxtail recipe a few days ago, I thought I should share the mashed cassava side I had with it. Like our dad and my younger brother, I’m a huge fan of ground provisions (aka provision or food) so I’m always trying to come up with different ways to enjoy these […]

Nutritious Jamaican Callaloo With Saltfish Recipe.

Nutritious Jamaican Callaloo With Saltfish Recipe.

I believe it’s time to clear the air a bit when it comes to callaloo in respect to Jamaican Callaloo and callaloo from the other islands which make up the Caribbean. In Trinidad and Tobago and many of the other Caribbean islands, callaloo is a lovely rich soup made from tender dasheen bush leaves (or […]

Scrumptious Vegetable Fried Rice.

Scrumptious Vegetable Fried Rice.

Vegetable fried rice is one of those dishes that’s very simple to make and can be personalized in so many ways. But there are some dishes you simply can’t recreate (as you remember from your childhood) and to be quite honest I don’t even try, so in this recipe I’ll show you ‘my’ take on […]

Distinctive Curry Seim With Potato.

Distinctive Curry Seim With Potato.

  Seim (see Hyacinth Bean if you don’t know what they are) was yet another dish my mom would cook occasionally, which she couldn’t even force us to eat as kids. She would add coconut milk, left over pieces of stewed meats and even pieces of salted cod to try and get us to eat […]

A Tasty Caribbean Recipe Using Green Bananas.

A Tasty Caribbean Recipe Using Green Bananas.

  This recipe is a combination of many things. It’s a take on a recipe my mom would make but instead of using canned salmon as I did, she would normally use pieces of salted cod. Then about a year ago I saw Levis Roots of “Reggae Reggae Sauce” sauce fame cook up a batch […]

Eggplant With Potatoes A Classic Vegetarian Dish.

Eggplant With Potatoes A Classic Vegetarian Dish.

Similar to the original curry baigan and aloo recipe I shared with you guys back in 2009 (time really flies), this one is very flexible and can work as a vegetarian meal or you can add left over stewed meats or pieces of salted cod and take it to another level. With the strong East […]
