“I found this recipe while searching for a a way to use Chinese mustard greens, on a healthy eating food site called "Three Tastes". I am submitting it here because there is nothing else like it yet on this site, and it is truly delicious. You can use other greens, even strongly flavored ones like endive, radicchio, dandelions, etc., but more sturdy greens like kale may have to be wilted first. The result is a tasty comfort food, full of healthy greens.”
