Caribbean Callaloo Soup Recipe video! 🏝(plus carnival playlist!)

Darlings! It’s Carnival this weekend and time for one of my favourite things: to nyam my way around the Caribbean!

What better time to share a video + recipe for one of my ultimate fave Caribbean dishes: Callaloo Soup!

There’s a sentimental connection to this dish, remembering friends afar who i went to school with back on the islands, and so i thought i’d make my own version (which happens to be vegan and gluten free but i don’t subscribe to any food label cause i believe in doing you and eating what the hell works for your body. More on that HERE and HERE if you want).

So, welcome to our tiny kitchen! Filmed on the hottest day of the year so far of course! Ketil is my sous chef and sound person! I am adding unhinged commentary as always. IGTV below and recipe card and deets are below! Oh and a playlist to cook and nyam and dance to on the right - si mi yah! 🍵

Let me know what you think!

For hope and inspiration, Callie Day

So back in 2016 i was going through a particularly tough time. not so hopeful to say the least. some are often surprised to hear that, in light of the work i was doing those years. but to anyone reading who is moving through dark days, i know it might seem naff for me to say, but i’ma say it anyway, i hope you can read this and believe things will get better. i believe in you, and i admire and cheer you on for showing up to meet this day. i know things can feel hopeless, perhaps dark and frightening, but you will get through this. i promise, you can and you will.

What can we learn from the full moon - eclipse - retrograde(s) - Cancer season energy?

In the last few days alone, Gatwick airport air traffic control computers went down, the internet was out in our entire district for the day, numerous apps and platforms with glitches or completely down across the world (the last time happened on the last Mercury Retrograde in March) and is the sat nav issue resolved yet? I mean...the energy is quite something! Have you observed anything?

I would just - really like to live or stay here a while...!

Lenny Kravitz sure has some good taste! Since watching (and equally salivating) over this home - for clarity i mean the farm itself dah-ling, i can’t stop thinking about it and referring people to it. I’m even referencing this eye bath of deluxe refreshment in my latest podcast episode. So dedicating a whole post to it right here on the blog. And we can all enjoy. In whatever way we like.

What do you think - should we take a trip?!

Imagine…!
