Liberian check rice

Related imageLiberian check rice is a loved dish there.  Rice is enjoyed in some form on a near daily basis in Liberia.  This rice is made with jute leaf which when cooked has the same texture that okra imparts to a dish.

Jute leaf or molokehya is not always easy to find but is sometimes available in your local African or Middle Eastern market.  I used the typical substitute for this which is a combination of okra and spinach.  It works well as a side to Liberian chicken gravy.  Enjoy!
