Jamaican Callaloo Rice is an easy, healthy dinner that will be filling. Made from “plain” rice and callaloo, this combination creates a dish that can be enjoyed at lunch or dinner.
In a pot over a low flame, melt butter and saute onion, garlic, escallion, thyme, pimento and hot pepper for 2 minutes.
Add callaloo and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.
Wash rice and place in the pot with just enough water to come 1 1/2 inches above the rice.
Season pot with salt, black pepper, sugar, cock soup mix and coconut milk. Rice must not be steamed over a medium flame.
When liquid comes to a boil, reduce the flame to very low, cover pot with cling wrap and allow to steam. Steam until the grains have swollen and burst.
May be served with any meat or alone, depending on preference, diet or dietary restrictions.
