Mustard Greens with Cumin and Balsamic

Mustard Greens with Cumin and Balsamic

This recipe was shared with our CSA members on January 5th. I found this recipe on the Kosher Foodies blog. It  comes from someone who joined a CSA but had no idea what to do with Mustard Greens, so here’s some inspiration.



Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/2 onion, coarsely chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

2 bunches mustard greens

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


  1. Heat oil in large skillet and add onions until they are soft, about 7 minutes. Add garlic, cumin seeds and crushed red pepper and saute for 3 more minutes.
  2. Add greens in batches, stirring until they wilt, about 3 minutes per batch.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until greens are tender, or about 15 minutes (the recipe said 30, but I found that it happened way more quickly than that).
  4. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper and mix in vinegar.
  5. Serve hot or at room temperature.
