I have a passion for Caribbean food and ethical business practices and that was the basic criteria for my restaurant. We chose this One Plate Planet because we want to be as ethical as possible and hope other restaurants follow suit. We aim to source our produce as locally as possible, the spinach is sourced from Stepney City Farm, the beef ethically sourced from Walter Rose and Son Butchers and the crab sustainably sourced from Direct Seafoods.
Prep 30min; Cook time 45min; Ready in 1hr 15min
Roughly chop spinach leaves and put into a large saucepan. Add the chicken stock, onion, beef, black pepper, shallots, thyme, chilli and crab meat. Cover and simmer until meat is tender, about 35 minutes.
Add the okra, and cook for 8 minutes.
Remove the chilli. Puree the soup in a blender or food processor. Reheat, and adjust seasonings.
