Serves: Serves 4


Ingredients
1/2 cup Thinly sliced onions
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 lb Mustard Greens, washed and torn into pieces
2 - 3 Tbsp Chicken or Vegetable broth, vegetarian option
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/4 tsp Dark Sesame Oil

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Tips for Preparing Mustard Greens Rinse mustard greens under cold running water and cut into 1/2" slices for quick and even cooking. To get the most health benefits from mustard greens, we recommend letting them sit for a minimum of 5 minutes before cooking. Sprinkling with lemon juice before letting them sit may be able to help activate their myrosinase enzymes and increase formation of beneficial isothiocyanates in the greens.
  2. 1. 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.
  3. 2. 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.
