Authentic Jamaican Pepper Pot Soup Recipe
Jamaican Pepper Pot Soup Recipe
by Nemonie Cassells
I love food! Let me say it a little louder… I LOVE FOOOOOD!!I love food
so much that it was important to me that I learned to cook my favorite
There is always something cooking up in my kitchen, meals that most only eat in a restaurants, but nothing, absolutely nothing to me like my Jamaican cuisine!!!
Now listen up, soups are not my favorite meals to dine on, but when I do I appreciate a haughty bowl of creamy, steamy flavorful soup!
You can only imagine the excitement I created when I first tasted the Jamaican pepper pot soup!
I was at a local restaurant and I ordered it as an appetizer.
Needless to say, I requested to see the chef, we met, fell in love, got married and had 5 beautiful children together… just kidding, but wouldn’t that make an interesting story, Oh well!
I did meet with the chef though and requested a simple recipe minus whatever secret ingredients he might have added because I myself am a genius in the kitchen and would make my own, hair raising, toe curling, dancing in your chair, are you tasting this soup? soup!
And that's exactly what I did!
The Jamaican pepper pot soup is famous for this one Ingredient… the callaloo! The callaloo is a green leafy plant that looks like a Kale and spinach hybrid.
It is absolutely delicious and makes this soup one of the best to come out of Jamaica!
Here’s MY Jamaican Pepper pot recipe (below)…
NOTE: You can enjoy pepper pot soup even if you’re a vegetarian, just minus the meat!! ENJOY!!
