Just made some for dinner tonight.
I got a bunch of mustard greens through my CSA, and a fellow CSA-er passed on his recipe, really good.
I changed it a bit, so this is a mixture of mine and his.
First I fried bacon in a large pan, 5 good-sized pieces.
When it was done, I removed and set aside.
Then put in an onion, chopped -- cook for about 5 minutes or until fairly softened.
Then add a clove or two of garlic (minced). Cook another 2-3 minutes.
Then add two cans of rinsed black beans (can be other kinds of beans) and salt and pepper to taste. I added some Cajun spice from Penzey's too.
Cook another couple of minutes.
Meanwhile, have the mustard greens ready. I used one large bunch, not really sure of the measurement. It filled a good-size salad bowl when chopped. (Washed it, got rid of the stems and cut out some of the bigger stems, then coarsely chopped.)
Layer the mustard greens over the bean mixture. Add about half a cup of water. Cook until wilted and tender, stirring frequently.
Serve with rice.
I also broke up the bacon pieces and sprinkled those over the top.
It's the second time I've made it (first time without bacon), the mustard greens were slightly undercooked the first time and slightly overcooked this time, still good but they didn't have as strong of a taste (and I liked the stronger taste).
