USES & COOKING SUGGESTIONS

Great green to vamp up a salad or stir fry or try the green chip recipe below!

Cajun Mustard Chips (from Amber Wilson)

  • 1 bunch mustard greens
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasonings
  • salt, to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees
  2. Triple wash and thoroughly dry the mustard greens (Use a salad spinner to make sure greens are dry, but you can use a kitchen towel or paper towels if you don’t have a salad spinner.) Remove the center rib from the larger greens. The ribs are tough to eat, so you just want to make sure that you are using the leafy part of the greens. Place the greens in a large bowl and add the olive oil and seasonings. Toss the greens with your fingers until all of the greens are covered evenly with the oil and seasonings. Transfer the greens to a cookie sheet and lay in a single layer (you may need to use 2 cookie sheets for all of the greens to fit properly in a single layer.) Let the greens bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until dry and slightly brown. Then, dig in!
