Mustard Greens.

Mustard Greens. It wasn't until a few years ago that I really discovered this spicy garden treat. I had heard of them, maybe even tasted them, unknowingly, in salads and sandwiches. These greens are easy to grow and make your garden look lush and full of life! 

Territorial Seed is my go-to seed company, www.territorialseed.com  and I'll be planting their Dragon Tongue Mustard Greens soon. 

In the kitchen, they are more versatile than you can imagine. Recently I used them on a pizza. Yes, pizza with mustard greens. Weird, I know. But it was really delicious and by adding a bit of shredded parmigiano and sautéed wild mushrooms it made a perfectly (mostly) healthy and light pizza for lunch. 

My other favorite use for mustard greens is to mix them into my morning scramble. A couple of eggs and a handful of mustard greens- yum! 

As a fresh green (not cooked in any manner) they tend to be a bit tougher than your regular head of romaine lettuce. Even so, I still enjoy them in my salads. Today I'm having seasonally appropriate spring green plate full of romaine lettuce, spinach, radish and a small handful of mustard greens, dressed with my Oh So Easy Vinaigrette. 

 

Buon Appetito!
