This is a Middle Eastern classic, but I must say its made best by those in Egypt! Ask anyone you know from Egypt about this and see what they say. It's so yummy, seems a bit strange has almost a gelatinous texture and slimy in its consistency, but once you taste you'll be hooked! Remember, you can find find frozen molokheya in most Middle Eastern markets. The English names for it are Jew's Mallow, Jute Mallow, Nalta Jute. Fresh is best, but I never found it fresh anywhere in USA. Frozen is just as delicious too, don't worry. Here in Egypt they cook this molokheya with rabbits, I have not been brave enough to try yet. Something about the thought of that cute little rabbit...LOL....Enjoy!
