Egyptian spinach

 

In season from June to August.

Nutrition

Egyptian spinach (also known as molokhia or jute mallow) is abundant in vitamins and minerals, and has an especially high content of carotene and calcium. The characteristic “stickiness” assists in keeping blood sugar levels down.

Connoisseur selection / storage

Select plants that are vivid dark green, with straight and firm stems. In order to prevent drying out, keep in vegetables storage-use plastic bags or other suitable lidded containers, and store in a refrigerator.

Cooking Tips

Quickly boil the leaves and soft portions of stems for use in boiled dishes, sauce-dressed dishes, and soups.
