About this recipe: A mouthwatering puree of taro leaves and crab served over rice or as a soup. If taro leaves are not available, you may substitute approximately 400g of Chinese spinach or regular spinach.
Look for the harder to find ingredients at Caribbean shops and markets. Taro leaves can be substituted with similar leaves known as simply callaloo, bhaaji or dasheen.
This is nothing but pure carribean flavour, mouth watering and overall healty. Taste is delighting and very good. Try this for kids who don't like spinach. - 23 Dec 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've never tried any authentic version of this, but I wasn't impressed. The habanero didn't offer sufficient flavor. The okra goo accentuated the sliminess of the spinach. I thought it was rather bland an forgettable. - 01 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The dish came out good. The only problem is the lack of flavor. Added salt to taste but it needed something extra. Growing up with this dish I could tell that the habanero and salt wasn't enough. Just have to play with the seasoning. Pour it over rice and its delicious. - 25 Dec 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
