A brief, tantalizing mid-winter thaw followed by snow, ice, and more snow has got me really craving a tropical getaway. Unfortunately, a Caribbean vacation is no where to be seen on my March calendar (pruning fruit trees in blizzard-like conditions, however, is scheduled for this week – huzzah). But at least I can whip up some tropical-inspired dishes to tide me over until spring!
If you’re as sick of winter as I am, try one of these vegan Caribbean recipes (although the flavors are tropical, I tried to stick with recipes that use seasonal produce).
- Jamaican Jerk Tempeh (one of my new favorite tempeh recipes)
- Jamaican Veggie Patties (I can’t believe these rich little pastries are vegan!)

Thanks for this list. I’m definitely ready to try some vegan Jamaican recipes this time of year, and we’ve been eating a lot of roasted vegetables and hearty soups, too.
