Sara’s Mustard Greens
This dish is a recipe with Southern roots. The sauce is very flavorful and complements the mustard greens, which can sometimes taste bitter on their own.
3 bunches mustard greens, washed and chopped roughly
1 red onion, cut in ˝ circles
5 Tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
1 teaspoon Bragg Liquid Aminos* (optional)
˝ cup + 2 Tablespoons Earth Balance,* butter or ghee
4 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sea salt* or any type of salt you prefer
1. Sauté onions in 2 tablespoons of Earth Balance until tender and caramelized.
2. Steam mustard greens for 30–45 minutes until they have turned an “army green” color and are very soft. Drain well in colander.
3. Melt remaining Earth Balance in saucepan and add rest of ingredients.
4. Mix drained greens, sauce and onions in pan briefly.
Serves six to eight. Cooking time: one hour.
