Recipe by LetiBeti

Well I was browsing the website and I noticed no recipe for this dish so I just had to put up one. Trying to work out this recipe I have seen my family make without much effort so I hope I get all the ingredients right. In Trinidad we mostly make eat this as a side dish but some people would categorize this as a soup so you could add meat (crab or small chunks of beef). In Trinidad we like things spicy so pepper is a must for me :) but it's optional

Directions

  1. Clean the leaves and remove the skin from the stalks and tips, rinse and chop coarsely.
  2. In a large pot, add all the ingredients with 2 cups of water.If you are adding meat it can go in with with ingredients at this time.
  3. Cover the pot and let simmer for minutes on a medium heat, ensuring the pepper is visible all the time and does not burst or this would make it very spicy.
  4. Remove pepper and let cool.
  5. Using a swizzle stick gently puree to blend like a soup or until a smooth consistency a blender could also be used by on a low speed just for a few seconds.
