Directions

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, and ginger; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the allspice, turmeric, coriander, and thyme; cook 1 minute longer.
  2. Pour in the vegetable stock and sweet potatoes and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 5 minutes. Add the kale and okra; simmer 5 minutes. Stir in the coconut milk, tomato, black-eye peas, and lime juice. Simmer about 5 minutes longer until the vegetables are tender.

I thought the blending of the spices on this was perfect. You could taste a hint of everything without any one spice being overpowering. Thanks for sharing.

I'm giving this 3 stars instead of 1 only because of the nutritional value of this soup. I am so sorry, but this was terrible. I followed the directions exactly except I didn't have thyme, so I used rosemary and I also used home-made vegetable stock. Maybe that's what my error was, I don't know, but we couldn't eat it. I did notice that the soup seemed a little more edible before I put in the lime juice.

Jam-packed with SUPERFOODS like Onions, Garlic, Ginger, Kale, Sweet Potato, Tomato, Lime and Black Eyed Peas! You can't go wrong here, it's wonderfully flavourful. A taste of the Caribbean! Loved it!! Thank you Traci B.

I was worried it could end up kinda strange with all the different ingredients in it. It was not strange at all. The best thing I have made in a long time!

The reviews were not helpful so I decided to try the soup anyway. I must say it was delicious. The favors were so well blended. I must admit I added a little salt and black pepper. The aroma was wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing. I will definitely make this again.

The lime did it. It is a sweet soup. I made it the day before and just put the lime juice on the table and told guest to add a few drops. They loved it!

I liked this soup but found the flavour a bit bland. It is super healthy so I will make it again, but next time will probably double the spices!

I recommend you use stock rather than broth since it's more flavorful! You can up the spices if you prefer. I like to puree a little bit of the veggies to add into my stock as well.
