Mustard Greens and Yellow Squash Saute

Enjoy two iconic side dishes from the HeartMath Kitchen. These summer vegetables reflect the North Carolina roots of the company’s founders as well as the healthy mindset of its California-based workforce.

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.

Nancy- I had the same reaction. Also, why are those greens being cooked to death? (The sauce sounds good)

the title says Mustard Greens and Yellow Squash Saute but they forgot the squash in the ingredients and no mention in the instructions

Love the yellow squash, have made it many times, but I don't cook it as long, more al dente and juicier!

Sounds like a good argument to limit T.V. and stop allowing it to be a companion/babysitter for kids…
