Test Kitchen Tip

Placing the mustard greens in ice water immediately stops cooking and helps them retain their color.


Blanch mustard greens in a large pot of boiling water, 5 minutes. Plunge greens into ice water, then spin dry.

Melt butter and oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté 5 minutes. Add cream and simmer until thick, 2–3 minutes.

Stir in greens to coat with cream mixture, then season with salt and pepper.
