Joel makes a hearty Red Beans Soup for the newlyweds, Preedy and Tiffany Chance with some help from some products from Grace Foods


2 cans Grace Red Beans, drained

4 – 5 pieces pigtail

3 – 4 pimento peppers, seeded and chopped

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 lb yam, peeled and chopped

1 medium dasheen, peeled and chopped

½ lb pumpkin, peeled and chopped

2 tbsp chopped herbs (thyme, chives, shadon beni)

1 pack Grace Chicken Flavoured Soup Mix

1 can Grace Coconut Milk

3 – 4 cloves garlic, chopped

1 scotch bonnet pepper

Salt and black pepper


Dumplings/Spinners dough   

2 tbsp oil


  1. In a large pot, heat the oil over high heat. Add the pigtail pieces and let cook allowing the fat to render, approximately 1 – 2 minutes.
  2. Add the provisions and mix well. Cook for another 1 – 2 minutes. Add the pimento peppers and garlic. Season with a little salt and black pepper.
  3. Stir in the pumpkin and green seasonings. Add enough water to cover the ingredients.
  4. Add the Grace Chicken Flavoured Soup Mix, the Grace Coconut Milk and the scotch bonnet pepper. Let this cook for 15 – 20 mins or until the provisions are cooked, stirring intermittently. You may need to add a little more water if the soup begins to get too thick.
  5. Add the Grace Red Beans and mix well.
  6. Shape the spinners/dumpling dough into small balls and add to the soup. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Let simmer for 5 – 10 minutes to allow the dumplings to cook. Serve.
