Callaloo is more or less like spinach, though people will swear that it’s totally different. It does have a distinct taste and is very savory. It’s not as sharp as spinach, but with more creamy notes. It’s smoother and rounder in taste, than spinach.
STEAMED CALLALOO with tomatoes, onions, garlic, herbs and scotch bonnet pepper is a favourite by many for breakfast or as a side dish with lunch/ dinner. Why not try something new-Callaloo Juice
