5 Underappreciated Green Vegetables You Should Be Eating

  • 4 of 5

Mustard Greens: These leafy greens, which originated in India but are now common in Japanese, Chinese, and Southern American cooking, are similar to kale and collard greens, but have a less bitter and distinct Dijon mustard taste. They can be eaten raw, like in a sandwich for a little extra flavor, or sautéed for Mustard Greens and Yellow Squash Saute, but are most often steamed or boiled. Clean them easily by swishing the greens around in a bowl of water to remove the dirt. Cook up a cup of mustard greens with olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper and you’ll help lower your cholesterol, reduce your risk of cancer, and flush out toxins from the body.

Love leeks but they are a little expensive. I've bought some dried fava beans, but haven't cooked them yet. Never had them before.
