1 T. butter

2 - 3 t. ground coriander

3 c. chicken broth

14 oz. frozen molokhia, thawed

roast chicken, homemade or store-bought

1 onion, peeled and chopped enough white vinegar to cover onions salt and pepper to taste

Reserve 1/4 of the chopped garlic.

Over low-medium heat, fry the remaining garlic in the butter for 1 minute.

Add coriander, and fry another minute.

Add garlic to broth.

Add molokhia, and bring to just before the boiling point.
