Molokhia Seeds (Egyptian Spinach)
This "food of kings" dates back to the time of the pharaohs, when an Egyptian king drank it in soup to recover from an illness. Today, it is the most widely eaten vegetable in Egypt, where it is often cooked with rabbit broth, garlic and coriander and served with baked rabbits and rice. Modern Egyptians also use Molokhia to make a soup prepared since ancient times with the same spices but with lamb, beef or duck. Molokhia is considered to be extremely nutritious.
