lovely soup - warming and filling. Though I would have said more Central American than African? (i guess Caribbean food has African roots though come to think of it). Chicken seems a little pointless, I left it out and just added different sorts of beans - also think bacon works pretty well in this. I also used a caribbean curry powder mix which has got more cloves and allspice in it, and a squeeze of lime juice,which makes it more aromatic and balances the sweet coconut. Interesting recipe though, thanks for posting!
