OMG, this soup is simply divine... no actually, it is the devil! I couldn't stop eating it, bowl after bowl after delicious, mouthwatering bowl. I finished all 6 servings in one day!
Thank god I'm lazy and don't get out much... otherwise I would have made many more batches and ended up killing myself from overeating.
Seriously though, you need to try this soup. Oh, and HAHAHA... good one Corwynn! For a real laugh, try finding some callaloo leaves in your neighborhood. I went to 4 different grocery stores and not one staff member, their management, or even the professional Chef I ran into had heard of this ingredient before. Either way, spinach worked out just fine. As well, for those of you with limited, microwave-only cooking knowledge, shallots look like this:
... and salt beef is more commonly known as corned beef.
Thanks goes out to my friendly, neighborhood grocers for those tidbits of knowledge. Otherwise I’d still be roaming the isles of the grocery store instead of being keeled over in pain from the 6 bowls of soup I just ate.
