Ingredients

3 cups callaloo that has been washed and chopped
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 medium onion sliced 
2 garlic cloves minced
salt and pepper

This is the most simple way to cook callaloo. Heat oil on medium in skillet or wok. I personally prefer to make this in a wok because the wok allows the water to evaporate easily.  Add garlic and onion and saute for a minute. Add callaloo, a pinch of salt and black pepper. Stir fry for about two minutes than reduce flames to medium low and allow to steam uncovered for two minutes then stir again.

This is the tricky part. You must determine when the callaloo is ready depending on how firm you like it. I like mine almost uncooked so I just cook mine for a few minutes but my fiance likes it a little tender. This depends on how tender you like your greens.

The thinG to remember is never let your greens start getting brown, then you know they are overcooked. You should get a deep beautiful forest green color.
