Healthy Caribbean Cooking

Caribbean recipes combine African, Amerindian, French, East Indian, and Spanish styles of cooking. These traditions are a reflection of both colonial and native influences of the region. Rice , a common staple of a Caribbean meal isn't complete without a generous helping. It is eaten with a variety of sauces and beans. The rice prepared on each island may be a little different. Some season their rice, or add peas and other touches - like coconut. Sometimes the rice is yellow, but other times it is part of a dish.

Some cookup rice have meat, others are simply vegetarian. Join native Guyanese food educator Yonnette Fleming as she demonstrates the recipes of her Caribbean upbringing. We will learn to spice up bland grains, legumes, and leftover vegetables to create a healthy complete one pot Caribbean meal.
