To assemble the Loaves: -Divide the dough in to 8 pieces and roll each piece in to a circle, about 1/2 cm thick. -Spoon callaloo mixture onto half of the dough and rub a little water around dough edges, fold over to seal in callaloo. -Brush the top with coconut oil. -Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. -Place folded pieces on a well-greased sheet and place on the bottom rack of the oven. -Bake until golden brown (this should take around 15 minutes).
