With Jamaica being a tropical country with warm temperatures year-round, you may be shocked to find out that soups are actual an integral part of Jamaican cuisine. Here are a few of my favorite vegan Jamaican soups!

My best Jamaican soups:

Most Jamaican soup recipes feature an assortment of root vegetables, flour dumplings, meat or legumes, and lots of delicious spices. Of course, I have made all of my childhood favorites vegan and gluten free.

Instant Pot Jamaican Stew Peas

This hearty Instant Pot Jamaican Stew Peas recipe is the perfect taste of the Island, with delicious Kidney Peas cooked in coconut milk, thyme, allspice and topped with dumplings.

Pureéd Jamaican Pumpkin Soup

This Jamaican Pumpkin Soup is an adapted version of Jamaican style pumpkin soup without meat. Pumpkin soup was my family’s favorite when growing up. In fact, my mom made it weekly. Enjoy the taste of the Tropics with this delicious and easy to prepare soup! It is vegan and gluten-free.

Jamaican Pigeon Pea Stew

This flavorful Jamaican pigeon peas stew, also known as gungo pea stew, is really easy to prepare. It is made with pigeon peas, simmered with potato, carrot, sweet potato, celery, herbs, and spices. You will make it over and over again!

Jamaican Spinach Soup

This amazing Vegan Spinach Soup is such a hearty and comforting soup. It is a Jamaican-style recipe, with spinach cooked in seasoned coconut milk, seasoned with thyme, scallion, and pepper.
