OMG this soup is simply divine... no actually it is the devil! I couldn't stop eating it bowl after bowl after delicious mouthwatering bowl. I finished all 6 servings in one day! Thank god I'm lazy and don't get out much... otherwise I would have made many more batches and ended up killing myself from overeating. Seriously though you need to try this soup. Oh and HAHAHA... good one Corwynn! For a real laugh try finding some callaloo leaves in your neighborhood. I went to 4 different grocery stores and not one staff member their management or even the professional Chef I ran into had heard of this ingredient before. Either way spinach worked out just fine. As well for those of you with limited microwave-only cooking knowledge shallots look like this: http://www.cooking.com/advice/adgloss.asp?GlossType=ingr&Item=Shallots... and salt beef is more commonly known as corned beef. Thanks goes out to my friendly neighborhood grocers for those tidbits of knowledge. Otherwise I d still be roaming the isles of the grocery store instead of being keeled over in pain from the 6 bowls of soup I just ate.
I made this soup for a couple for was having a "romantic dinner for two" Caribbean style. They both loved this soup! I made it again for myself and husband and we both thought it was wonderful. The only suggestion I would have is this: it is a little on the salty side so really trim the salt beef well first.
I thought this was very delicious. My girls really liked it. I didn't put the okra or the crabmeat in cause I didn't have any. I added two cups of coconut milk and reduced some of the chicken stock to 4 cups and it just tasted so flavourful. I will make again for sure. Thanks.
This was really easy to make and tasted something like the Callaloo we had on our Carribean vacation. It is very very tasty and its good for you too. If you are having a Carribean night this is a great starter!
Never Again.... I had high expectations for this dish based on the reviews. We were very disappointed. I followed the directions exactly as written using fresh spinach and it was awful. I will say that the longer it cooked the better it tasted but even after 4 hours on the stove and several adjustments it was still not up to par. Since my investment was 15.00 I did what I could to make it taste better but even after adjusting it though it was better it had a dull flavor.
I totally modified this soup because I didn't have all the ingredients plus I am a lazy cook and it turned out great. I started with a bunch of callaloo added 32 oz of chix stock onion quarter sweet onion little hot yellow pepper thyme salt pepper canned crab meat. I simmered for a while and then added a can of condensed milk. No pureeing just ate it as it and it was amazing.
You will need a food processor. Callaloo is a super hardy green that does not easily become soft. I put it through the blender 4 times and it was still chunky. It's a filling soup. Use a food processor.
