Something has to be aside the barbecue

On all islands you may find alot of vegetables and roots that could be used as Ground Provisioning. You have get feed up with something aside the barbecue. Or you need something to make a soup from. Sallad is not really well known on the island it entered them at least along with the tourists and the boat people that sail around in the caribbean seas. Vegetables enter the table mostly in a cooked way. Cause you cannot harvet rice or noodles on the islands they are not a regular food here.
