Ingredients
  • 1 bundle (about 12) taro or collard leaves (taro leaves areusually available at Caribbean or African grocers)
  • 7 small okra pods
  • 4 chives
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ΒΌ cup chopped onion
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 thyme sprigs
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 4 Scotch bonnet or habanero peppers, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
Directions
  1. Strip the stalks from the taro leaves. Wash the leaves, okra and chives, then chop finely.
  2. Combine all the ingredients except the hot peppers, salt and black pepper in a saucepan, bring the mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook over low heat, uncovered, for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is reduced by about half.
