garlic, minced, or to taste
distilled white vinegar
dry mustard powder
crushed red pepper flakes
mustard greens, washed and chopped
1 (15 ounce) can
cannellini (white kidney) beans, drained
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Delicious as is or withe the addition of chicken, fish or even peppered bacon. I usually make this in a similar manner with a swig of white wine instead of viengar and add a protein, pasta and aditional olive oil with or without cheese (shreds of parm are my favorite) as a meal. Crusty bread is great for dipping/
I liked the flavor of the sauce and the beans. The greens were a bit bitter for me but that is I think personal preference. I had thought I grabbed a can of white beans at the market, but I grabbed pink.. so I used those. I might make this again, but with spinach which for me is a milder flavor. Updated - I had some leftovers of this for dinner tonight and the bitterness has toned down considerably. If you are new to greens, like me, I'd recommend making these a day before you plan to eat them.. it really improved it!
if your greens are bitter.....just add a dash of nutmeg...
Great taste. I used this recipe with a mix of turnip and mustard greens and the flavor was fantastic!
So good. I doubled the garlic and did a full teaspoon of mustard and a full teaspoon of red pepper flakes (we like a little heat). Forgot to add salt or pepper, still loved it.
I had never eaten mustard greens before, so I made this recipe to give them a try. I liked the greens, but I wish there were more of the added seasonings for a stronger flavor. I'll double the seasonings next time I try this recipe - but I will definitely make it again!
How could I NOT try a recipe from a gal whose nickname is "fishnets."
Actually it was quite good. The previous recipe I had didn't use the vinegar, sugar and dry mustard, which livend it up.
Ok, I would have given this a 4 1/2 but ...obviously I couldn't. This was my absolute FIRST time eating much less MAKING mustard green. Never had em, never ate em. I had TONS growing in the garden(tried something new) I really liked this. Didn't have nutmeg so I was nervous about the bitterness, but it wasn't at all. Did it exactly as directed except 2 things- used apple cider vinegar and I used double the amount of garlic SCAPES rather than cloves...its what I had. DELISH. Other reviewers say that its better the next day- can't wait to try!
