Recipe of the Week:
Sauteed Mustard Greens With Garlic

It’s always fun talking vendors and discovering their favorite produce recipes. This week we learned Lucy Capdeboscq’s favorite way to cook mustard greens. Simply saute the greens with olive oil and garlic, and add in salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes! You’ll create a healthy and tasty way to enjoy your greens.
