A great Mustard Leaves Recipe
Last year I had this unidentified vegetables in my yard that survived neglect, the weather, and all the bugs that hit the yard. I eventually figured out it was mustard leaves and decided to knowingly plant this year. After many trials and experimentation I finally figured a recipe that got everyone coming back for more. So I thought I'd share:
Mustard Leaves Soup
Lamb Broth (I am sure any other would work)
Big bunch of mustard
3 medium potatoes diced
2 small tomatoes
1 medium onion diced
2 garlic cloves minced and fried (optional)
cinnamon to taste
pepper to taste
salt to taste
tablespoon carambola juice (you can use lemon juice instead)
I removed the mustard stalks and then chopped them.
I chopped thinly the leaves.
I boiled water then dunked first the leaves for a couple of minutes then removed them and drained them, then dunked the stalks in the same water for 3/4 minutes then removed and drained them.
Then I combined everything in the pan and slow cooked for a long time.
I also had turnip leaves but even after boiling, they stayed bitter while the mustard leaves had a great flavor. So I still have the turnip green and not sure what to do with them. Any ideas?
