The Jamaican Style Vegetarian Stew Recipe is a lovely spicy, soupy Caribbean stew that has mild spices and the rich flavors of coconut milk. The original recipe had meat and I substituted the meat with vegetables. I also noticed a very strong resemblance to the stew we have in Kerala.

Serve this Jamaican Style Vegetarian Stew Recipe along with Saffron rice for dinner for weeknight or parties.
