"What Is Saluyot
Scientific Name: Corchorus olitorius

Also knows as:
Saluyot (Tagalog), Jute, Jew’s mallow, Egyptian spinach,  jute mallow, bush okra, West African sorrel (En), Chang shouo huang ma (Ch). Krinkrin (Fr)
Saluyot (Corchorus olitorius) is an edible leafy vegetable that is a member of the  genus Corchorus, classified under the subfamily Grewioideae of the family Malvaceae. Saluyot is widely found in tropical and subtropical areas from Asia to Africa valued as food and for its strong fiber. Saluyot has long been used as food staple since ancient times by Jewish people and Egyptians hence derived its English names Jew’s mallow and Egyptian spinach".


3 cups saluyot leaves (washed and cleaned)
2 small tomatoes
1 small onion
salt to taste


1. In a pan put all the ingredients and cook over medium heat, when simmering mix well, add salt to taste then continue simmering until done.
