Step One:  You may crush the tomatoes in a blender. (Do not process fine or liquid,) or you may just simply cut all the tomatoes.

Step Two: Either the tomatoes were cut or crushed trow it in a saucepan over a medium flame and cover for about 15 minutes to a boiling, then start stirring till the tomatoes become pasty, homogeneous, and consistent.

(Be aware that this is a long process, so, be patient. It pays off.) This process is said: Infusing the tomatoes with the energy from the fire under the food. (Remember, this is a tribal food.)

Add 1 tsp ginger, ½ tsp turmeric cinnamon and 1 tsp garlic.

Step Three: Cut the bell peppers and the onion and set them aside.

Step Four: Trop 2 or 3 teaspoon of organic liquid Aminos soy protein on the mushrooms of your choice and mix well, next put 1 teaspoon of organic garlic powder and ginger powder and mix well. (We have a well-prepared seasoning for this cuisine, coming soon on the market.) Set the mushrooms aside.

Step Five: Put a frying pan with 1/4 cup of Cold Pressed Organic Olive Oil. Heat over medium until over 300 -350 degrees, working in batch, add the mushrooms, and fry, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. Set the mushrooms aside.

Step Six: Bring back the sauce pan with the tomatoes mixed on the flame and start mixing: First add the liquid aminos, the garlic and the ginger powder next. Before mixing the Callaloo, press well to remove all the water on the Callaloo. This is important to remove the water when mixing the Callaloo leaves.

While mixing well, add the onions and the bell peppers and mix everything together, if it is too thick, add more olive oil about a few Tbsp, 4 or 5 depending on your taste and the number of guesses along with the quantity of the Collard Greens, you want to use. Finally, add the fried mushrooms, and keep stirring till you have a well homogeneous and tasty sauce and cover for about 7 or 10 minutes, till the bell peppers and the onions are halfway cooked, then taste, and if it is needed at ¼ tsp of Himalayan Salt. If no more salt is needed, you are ready for a healthy and delicious lunch or dinner.

Callaloo Comfit goes well with all the grains we listed earlier.
