7 greens you're not eating but should be

Sunday, March 17, 2013

So how are you doing? We eat lots of Swiss chard, collards sometimes, and arugula and mizuna occasionally. I'd like to figure out some better ways to prepare turnip and mustard greens since they've been a big FAIL when I've tried them in the past.

    I love greens but I do get stuck in a rut! Hmm, I smell a goal coming up.

    I want to do better at finding and eating these kinds of greens. It's not that I fear I won't like them, cuz I just love odd or different foods of any kind. It's just that I don't go out of my way to go to the stores that sell them. Sam's is pretty limited. But I will try harder, thanks.

    Mustard can make a great wilted salad by chopping into bite sized portions. Then cook a slice of bacon. Remove bacon and leave grease in skillet to heat with vinegar. Pour over the greens to wilt them. Add salt as desired. Sorry, but I'm not sure what the proportions are.

Mustard can also be boiled in small amount of salted water until tender and served with pepper sauce or vinegar.
