Cut the goat's head and feet into small pieces. Place in a medium-size pot of boiling water. The water must be enough to cover the goat’s head. Bring pot to a boil, over medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and discard the water.

Put the goat head and feet to boil in four cups of water over high heat. Add a few grains of pimento (allspice) and 2 cloves garlic. Boil the goat head and feet until partially cooked; add more water if needed.

Add the pumpkin, carrot and banana and allow to cook for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, make your dumplings. Set aside. Add yam and cook for an additional 10 minutes.

Add the dumplings, scallion, thyme and hot pepper then salt and pepper to taste. Stir and lower the heat.

Let simmer until soup becomes thick then remove from heat.
