Cooking with Mustard Greens


July 29, 2013 by Hope Gardens

Mustard is handy in the garden as a great companion plant and when left to go to seed, the tiny flowers attract beneficial insects. Outside of the garden and inside the kitchen, it’s a super tasty, healthy green.


Mustard Greens


1/2 c thinly sliced onions

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 T olive oil

1 lb mustard greens, washed and torn into large pieces

2 to 3 T chicken or vegetable broth

1/4 t salt

1/4  pepper

1/4 t dark sesame oil


In a large sauté pan, sauté onions in olive oil over medium heat until the onions begin to brown and caramelize, about 5 to 10 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook a minute more, until fragrant.

Add the mustard greens and broth and cook until the mustard greens are just barely wilted. Toss with sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Serves 4.

This recipe can be served with grains or protein and you can experiment with adding other veggies as well.
