Cauliflower and mustard greens is an unusual combination that really works, especially when tossed with a subtle peanut sauce. Make it a meal: Brown rice is the perfect accompaniment.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk together peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce and water in a small bowl.

  • Heat oil in a large deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat until very hot. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, about 30 seconds. Add cauliflower and vegetable broth (or water) and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered, until the cauliflower is almost tender, about 5 minutes. Add greens and simmer, covered, until the greens are tender, an additional 5 minutes. (Do not overcook the greens or they will lose their vibrant color.) Stir in the peanut sauce and cook, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve garnished with chopped peanuts.


People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.

This was surprisingly good. I hadn't tried mustard greens before. I like them in this recipe. The peanut sauce mellows out the bitterness of the greens. It's an inexpensive healthy main dish. Definitely a keeper. Cindy Buffalo NY Read More
