View Full Version : Mustard Leaf Recipe?
04-07-2009, 02:49 PM
I accidently bought a HUGE thing of mustard leaves and I don't have any idea how to use it! It is so freakin' spicy and bitter and pungent, I was buying greens for green lemonade, not sure how that would turn out. Any ideas of what to do with these?

hahaha. i dont think you want to make green lemonade with them!! they ARE really hot. do you have a dehydrator? we always have a bunch of mustard in the garden that goes to waste and i keep wondering what would happen if i tried making "mustard chips" the same way i have made kale chips (kale chips are really good!).. but ive never tried it. if you have a dehydrator, maybe try brushing them with a bit of olive oil and salt and it seems like maybe it would make "hot chips"...let us know if you try it :) otherwise, i have no idea what to do with this stuff raw. baby leaves or small amounts in salads, but otherwise, i have no idea. the red mustard i grow is so hot that it will make your eyes water... i have rolled up the leaves and cut them "chiffonade" style, along with collard greens and whatever other milder greens Ive had around, also cut in the same way, and then used a sesame-lemon-garlic-olive oil dressing on it and it was good...

Are you talking about regular Mustard Greens? I have eaten them all My Life and never knew they were hot. They are great in Smoothies.

you can put a few in a salad.
spice up a soup.
use a little bit here and there in everything just to spice things up a little bit.
chop them up very small and make a salsa, and then put the salsa in a wrap.
you can put them in a processor and add them to some guacamole or a soup or some sort of pate.
you can use them sparingly as a spice.
you can put some sauce in them and roll them up and eat it like a little taqito.
someone told me once that if you can't eat something whole plain, then it's not a good idea to eat it because it means that it is too stimulating for you or something.
