Jah-maken Stew


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 2 cups of Rice (long grained)
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • juice of 1 coconut
  • 1 scallion
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 onions
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 Irish potatoes
  • 1 cho-cho (a green pear shaped squash)
  • 1/2 of a small cabbage
  • 1 scotch bonnet (or habenaro pepper)
  • 1 Tablespoon of non-hydrogenated vegan margarine
  • 1/8 Cup of Small red beans(cooked)
  • “old-bay” seasoning (as desired)
  • black pepper (as desired)
  • a little oil


Part I:

Shave cabbage (thin) into large cooking pot. Chop
tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, onions, cho-cho, and scotch
bonnet pepper into the pot. Lightly coat them w/ the oil
and toss w/ the spices. Then cover the pot tightly and cook
over medium heat (turn the flame lower after you hear it
cooking). They will be done when carrots are soft.

Part II:

Drop rice in a smaller cooking pot. Add coconut milk and
just enough water so it sits about 3/4 inch above the rice.
Add the margarine ,thyme and scallion (chopped). Cook over
low heat until done.

I ate this almost everyday while venturing through the
mountains of Jamaica. It is very filling and made a
wonderful outdoor dish (cooked over an open flame).
Eat fast, Jamaicans eat their food while it’s hot. Enjoy,
