This recipe is great served with cornbread or ladled over cooked brown rice. Caribbean Veggie Pepper Pot

Makes 4 servings

1 tablespoon coconut oil or canola oil

1 onion, chopped

1/4 cup chopped fresh garlic

1/4 cup chopped fresh ginger

1 jalapeño pepper (or 1/4 habanero), chopped

1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice

1 sweet potato (about 1 pound), peeled and chopped

2 carrots, peeled and chopped

1 bunch collards, chopped (3 to 4 cups, loosely packed)


4 cups vegetable broth

1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

1 bay leaf

Juice of 1 lime

Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1. Heat oil in a soup pot over medium-high heat. Saute the onion, garlic, ginger and jalapeño, stirring occasionally, until vegetables soften, about 5 minutes.

2. Stir in allspice, sweet potato and carrots. Add greens a handful at a time and stir until they wilt, about 3 minutes.

3. Add broth and bring heat to high. When broth comes to a boil, add thyme and bay leaf. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, until vegetables are tender.

4. Squeeze in lime juice and season with salt and pepper.
