Hey guys, I'm starting a new thing where I try one new-to-me fruit or vegetable per week. The genesis is that I live in close proximity to Asian, Mexican, and Indian markets and I often wander the aisles, wondering to myself, "How do you cook that?" It's time to find out!
This week, I begin with mustard greens.
Mustard greens can be cooked in any of the ways you would cook kale or collard greens. I thought this recipe sounded good.
Great results! Such a quick, simple, yet totally delicious way to cook greens. Who doesn't have a can of diced tomatoes hanging out in their cabinets? I served it over brown basmati rice. To me, the mustard greens tasted a lot like spinach. Yum!
I also made the Potato-Edamame Samosas with Coconut-Mint Chutney from Vegan with a Vengeance. This recipe took ages to make, but I think I was zoning out and it shouldn't normally take that long. Do you ever find yourself moving in slow motion in the kitchen and realize you are taking for evvvverrrr to finish cooking?
I added a bunch of extra lime juice to the coconut-mint chutney to suit my taste. The samosas also paired well with my lemon-date chutney.
It was one of those perfect meals that leaves you feeling absolutely content.
Have you tried any new foods lately? Whether the experience was good or bad, I'd love to hear about it.
