fresh mustard greens
recipe inspired by a visit to a local eatery


large bag of mustard greens, washed and stems removed

1 recipe white sauce (below)


Bring a pot of water to a boil.  Add the greens and let them simmer for 15 minutes.  Drain, shock with cold water to keep their beautiful color. 

Drain well and wring them out with your hands.  Chop very small.  Mix into the white sauce.
