One of the things I love about Caribbean food is how most of their dishes are based on simplistic flavours, infused together into what their food is all about.
I got this recipe from cousin-in-law who’s Jamaican, as I feel authenticity is everything when it comes to recipes.Skip to recipe
He told me all you need is the ingredients above, and thyme as your seasoning. To cook with butter, which is easily veganised anyways, much like other vegan Jamaican, or ital cuisine.
What’s in Jamaican callaloo?
Callaloo is typically prepared with onion, garlic, tomato, fresh thyme and scotch bonnet pepper. With a bit of salt and pepper to taste.
Simply fry it up and that’s that. Tastes surprisingly good as compared to how simple it sounds, a great way to get your kids to eat their greens.
What’s callaloo good for?
Callaloo is rich in iron, calcium, vitamin C and a wide range of antioxidants. You can eat this knowing it may help you toward achieving a healthy, balanced diet.
It tastes similar to spinach with a slightly different texture, and pairs well with Jamaican rice and peas, as well as an alternative to basmati rice with a vegan chickpea curry.
