Mustard Greens & Bulgur

January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (49 votes)

Pungent mustard greens beg for other strong flavors for balance. Here walnut oil, walnuts, dates, bulgur and white-wine vinegar do the trick.

Loved it!

Made this for dinner tonight and loved it! I, too, used spinach and Craisins... That's what I had on hand... Very tasty, quick, filling dinner! Will make it again, thanks for the recipe!

Easy to make...versatile
What an intriguing dish!

Well to be honest I'm actually a bit surprised with how well this turned out. Usually whenever eatingwell puts a recipe with shallots and vinegar in it they turn out terrible and over vinegary (has happened many times with their recipes). And I was extra worried because earlier this week I tried out mustard greens for the first time and hated the pungent bitter flavor. But I wanted to use up the rest of the greens I had so I tried this out. A bit skeptical on my first bite but it's actually not bad, pretty good actually. Wouldn't call it great or awesome rating, but I'm impressed. It really does hide the bitter mustard greens very nicely. I used brown rice (twice as much) instead of bulgur, cranberries in replacement of dates, almonds instead of walnuts, and 1 small yellow onion in place of the shallot. The nuts and cranberries are such a nice addition do not leave them out. I might make this again, kudos eatingwell for making an impressive challenging dish and not overdoing the vinegar and onion for once! =)

Really pretty colors, very interesting flavor

So, you doubled the grain,

So, you doubled the grain, changed the dried fruit & the nuts, then rated it 3 stars? Maybe it isn't too vinegary because you doubled the body of this recipe.


Yummy and easy to make!

I made this recipe and even my husband liked it. It is full of wonderfully great tasting ingredients and it's even good for you. This is one grains dish I will fall back on again and again.
