Callaloo Stew

Submitted by: 17REASONS

Introduction

A delicious and hearty stew based on the traditional Carribean Callaloo stew. If you eat meat, you can boost the flavor by adding 2-3 smoked ham hocks, which add rich smokiness without adding substantially to the calories and fat. To make this vegan, don't add ham hocks (of course) and use Better than Bouillon "No Chicken" base instead. A delicious and hearty stew based on the traditional Carribean Callaloo stew.
