    Do you have to let the molokhia defrost or can you cook it from frozen?

    My grandpa planted this Egyptian Spinach in our backyard, and always
    telling us that this super food is a secret of long life, I do believe him
    because many old folks in our country reach their age close to a 100 years
    old. They called it “Saluyot” in our country Philippines. Because I saw
    your video and make some research about this plant , now I realized they
    just called it in different name. I like your recipe and I will surely do
    this as part of our menu because my Mom love eating this vegetables. I
    will also order seeds to plant this spring time. Thank you, I hope you
    will share us more of your delicious and healthy recipes.

    I made it and it was great. I suggest to add 2 chicken cubes to have a real
    taste of chicken.

    You can find it in middle eastern stores in the USA, sometimes even in the
    Indian stores, it comes frozen, just cook it like made here, or your mom’s
    or tata’s recipe, We used to grow it in our garden at our home in New
    Jersey, and I still have my moms’ “mahgraffa” in my kitchen. I am going to
    make some now.

    This is a very different recipe from the one I learned but I am anxious to
    try your recipe with the different spices, fried bell peppers and a little
    vinegar, just to see the differences in flavors. Thanks for posting this
    interesting dish. watch?v=KsWYzsJiuD0&feature=g-all-c
