I decided to make this vegan spinach soup that is similar to traditional Jamaican pepperpot soup. I used spinach instead of callaloo and the result was remarkable. Check out Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip, Spinach Tofu Salad, Potato, And Spinach Curry.

My other Jamaican soup recipes are also a huge hit whenever I serve them, my Red Peas Soup, Pumpkin Soup, and Gungo Peas Soup are a must-try. 

Pepperpot soup is an African stew that originated in West Africa and made its way to the Caribbean and Atlantic coast of North America by the Slave trade. 

The traditional version had meat, starches, leafy greens cooked in a flavorful seasoned broth with hot peppers. 

Depending on the location, different leafy green vegetables were prepared.  In the Caribbean, the leafy greens of choice are callaloo or taro leaves and in North America, it is spinach or kale.

How To Cook Vegan Spinach Soup?

To make the spinach soup vegan, I not only omitted the meat but I boost the flavor by including onion, garlic, green onions, thyme, vegetable broth, vegetable bouillon, Scotch bonnet pepper and allspice berries cooked in coconut milk.

I also added potatoes and dumplings to the stew and let it simmer until thickened.  My family enjoyed it. 

  1. Heat oil in a large pot on medium heat, add onion, and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Stir in garlic, green onions, celery, thyme, and cook until fragrant. 
  2. Add spinach and stir until wilted. Add vegetable bouillon, coconut milk, vegetable broth, allspice berries, potatoes, dumplings, and Scotch Bonnet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer for about 25-30 minutes.
  3. For the dumplings: Place flour and salt in a bowl. Add water and mix to make a stiff dough. Pinch off small pieces of dough and roll them into the palm of your hands to make long thin dumplings. Drop into the simmering stew.
