The essential ingredient for this refreshing soup is a large quantity of finely chopped molokhia leaves. These are, of course, easily available in Egypt but you will probably have to make do with dried ones from a Middle Eastern food shop. The leaves have glutinous properties (so you could use finely chopped okra as an alternative), giving the soup a pleasing texture that is not dissimilar to Chinese shark’s fin soup.
