Last week at the San Francisco Ferry Building Farmer's Market, I discovered a new green I never heard of called Ruby Streaks Mustard Greens, and wow, I LOVE this vegetable!
The texture is much like Frisee. The purple streaks are really cool, but what blew me away was the flavor. This Mustard Green has this incredible hint of wasabi taste without the heat. I mixed the Ruby Streaks with arugula and just added some basic salad toppings from the Whole Foods salad bar for a fun lunch salad.
As far as health benefits, compounds found in mustard greens provide special support for three body systems that are part of cancer prevention: 1) detox 2) antioxidant, and 3) anti-inflammatory. [via Ecopia Farms]
I'm glad I got a big bag of the Ruby Streaks Mustard Greens because I ate it all. This mustard green is one of my new favorite vegetables. Definitely try it!
