Molokhia leaves - a type of edible green found in the Middle East and used in an Egyptian specialty "molokhia soup". The leaves have a mucilaginous (thickening) quality that helps thicken the soup. The ingredient is rare if at all available in the U.S. fresh but it can be found canned and sometimes frozen in Middle Eastern grocery stores. See buy link for a source for purchasing the seeds to grown your own at home.
