Looking for a healthy alternative to collards? Look no further. Mustard Greens offer a similar taste, but with an Asian flair from the umami-rich miso.

Serves 4 as a side


+ Add To Shopping List
1 teaspoon white miso paste
1/4 cup warm water
Several bunches of Asian mustard greens or baby bok choy, about 20 leaves
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon maple syrup or honey
Toasted sesame oil, for drizzling
Sesame seeds, for sprinkling


1. In a small bowl, whisk together the miso paste and water.

2. Trim off the rough bottoms of the mustard greens, separate the leaves, and rinse under running water. Pat dry.

3. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the mustard greens and cook about 2 minutes, turning occasionally. Add half the miso water, cover, and let cook until the stems start to soften, about 2 more minutes. If the skillet is getting dry, add more miso water.

4. Add the rice wine vinegar and maple syrup, and toss. Transfer to a serving plate, drizzle with sesame oil, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
