Quintonil is a small, tender leafy green, similar to spinach, in the amaranth family. It is one of many plants referred to as “quelite”, a blanket term use to describe the multitude of foraged small leafy greens that are eaten in Mexico. The quintonil plants used for the soup are being grown by Francisco’s Oaxacan Organic Farm, a source for a number of unusual Mexican herbs and vegetables featured at Comal.  On the menu Tuesday night – get it while it lasts!
