Do you want to know how I cook Meatless Red Peas Soup?  Follow along step by step as this Jamaican girl show you how she does it.

Meatless Red Peas Soup

Meatless Red Peas Soup

I looooooooove soup, in fact I drink soup several times  per week.  Red peas soup is my favorite  and since I am not really a fan of meat, then mine is meatless red peas soup.  Now I am not an expert cook, but I am very picky.  I have my own way of doing things so that I will be sure to actually eat it when it is done. So here goes!

Ingredients

  • Red Peas/Kidney Beans
  • Yellow Yam
  • Pumpkin
  • Chocho
  • Thyme
  • Dry Coconut
  • Garlic
  • Salt to Taste
  • Skellion
  • Scotch Bonnet pepper (Optional)
  • Coco (Edoe)

Preparation

If I have sufficient time, I soak the peas, in a covered container, with garlic overnight.  By the next morning, it smells so good!

So next day I get my peas on the stove. I add the salt at this point (I may need to add some later,but I allow the peas to cook with salt).  Some persons wait until the end to “season” the pot,  but I prefer to cook with the salt from scratch. It is totally up to you, it is your soup after all.  Then I get my dry coconut, YES, I grate the coconut. You can also blend if that is what floats your boat, freeze half of the milk for another day.

Now I get my produce ready.  Pumpkin, Coco and Chocho all goes in and I leave everything to just cook until the peas is soft.  Then I toss in the yam, and breadfruit. You can add dumplings if you like, but I am not really a fan either.

The last items I add are the skellion, thyme and pepper (optional).

What is your favorite kind of soup?
