The power of Mustard Greens

If you’ve never had mustard greens before, then I think you’re in for a treat. Think of it as horseradish in the form of a healthy fibrous dark leaf. It has the sharp pungency of a strong mustard and is indeed one of the most nutritious green leafy vegetables. The greens actually contain vitamin A, and K. As the mustard greens get bigger they are awesome in stir fries.

If you are not used to mustard greens, then be forewarned. They pack a big flavor punch, and are much more fibrous than lettuce or even spinach. You may want to sub out half of the mustard greens for lettuce or spinach if eating raw.
