Vegan MoFo Day 17: Tis the Season for Greens
Yesterday, we went to the farmers' market and greens were everywhere. As the autumn weather gets cooler, they are coming in like crazy. Today's mess o'greens is a mix of turnip, mustard, and a little bit of young kale. To prepare, boil them in salted water for far too long until they are very soft. For seasoning, I like a bit of toasted sesame oil, ume plum vinegar, and maybe 2 drops of liquid smoke. This may sound untraditional, but the end result tastes just right, with no ham hock involved.
