Corn Soup
Corn Soup

The more I write and share recipes about the culinary culture of the Caribbean, the more you’ll see me use the words “Comfort Food”, as we have so many dishes which warms the soul and take us to a happy place. Corn Soup is such a dish. While I have shared a vegetarian version a few years back, I thought I’d share this version with salted pig tails to show you a means of adding even more flavor to an already amazing dish. Salted beef or smoked meats will work great too.

You’ll Need…

1.5 – 2 lbs salted pigtails
1 1/4 cups yellow split peas
5 cups water (adjust as necessary)
4 cloves garlic

2 tablespoon coconut oil
6 sprigs thyme
1 large onion (diced)
2 stalks celery (diced)
1/4 cup parsley (chopped)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 scallions (chopped)
3 pimento peppers (aka seasoning peppers)
2 bird’s eye peppers (any spicy pepper you like)
3 tablespoon shado beni (culantro)
2 cups diced pumpkin
2 cups diced sweet potato
2-3 cups chicken stock
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
