A Jamaican friend brought a plastic bag of chopped callaloo . She cooked up some as a side dish. It was delicious. It beats spinach for nutrition! But, the Jamaican recipe can have coconut liquid which can add lots of calories. Other ingredients can add calories, too.
My friend gets baby plants from a local Jamaican farm. She grows it in her yard and has plenty. It is sold in cans, too. Our local supermarket sells this. Our town has plenty of Jamaican residents.
She also described a green smoothie she made with the callaloo.
