Sauteed green banana and callaloo

Sauteed green banana and callaloo

This recipe is easy to prepare, it doesn't take much time to cook and it's really delicious. Callaloo is similar to spinach and actually comes from the same plant family. It is a staple in many Caribbean and African diets. You can find callaloo at most African grocery stores, or you can replace it with spinach or even kale. If you havent tried it, I suggest trying to find the callaloo simply because its fun to try something new and you may find some other new foods to try if you check out a new store.

It was a great way to show them that vegetarian food can be delicious without it being a salad :)
