This week’s recipe will actually work with just about any green you want – but we’re devoting it to our food of the week, mustard greens.

 

Serve this as a side dish with fish or chicken. Drizzle the cooked greens with a small amount of vinegar – apple cider or balsamic would be perfect.

 

Simple Sautéed Mustard Greens 

(serves 4)

 

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 bunches of mustard greens, chopped and stems removed
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) vegetable stock
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • 1 Tbsp stone-ground mustard

 

In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds.

 

Add the mustard greens and season with a small amount of salt and pepper, turning constantly to wilt. When the greens have wilted, add the stock and stir well. Bring to a simmer and let cook for about 5 more minutes.

 

Remove from the heat and add the hot sauce and mustard, stirring well. Enjoy!
