Turnip Greens - 1 lb
Olive Oil - 1 tbsp
Black Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Green Chili / Jalapeno - 1, finely chopped
Roasted Garlic Cloves - 4,
Dijon mustard - 1 tsp
Wash the turnip greens and chop them, along with the stems, into small pieces.
Heat a large skillet and add a tbsp of olive oil. Add the mustard seeds and once they begin to pop, add the chopped jalapeno and roasted garlic cloves. If using roasted garlic, saute for a few seconds only otherwise if using raw garlic cloves, saute for a minute on low flame.
Then add the chopped greens and salt. Mix well and cover the pan with a tight lid. Reduce the flame and cook for 10 minutes. In between remove the cover once and toss.
Now remove the cover and cook on high heat till most of the liquid evaporates. Add a tsp of Dijon mustard, mix well and remove from heat. Serve immediately.
