Taste of Tuesday

This year we're growing a few new things.  One is a green called mizuna.  It is similar in taste to arugula when eaten raw, such as in a salad.  But when cooked, it has a mild taste.  Here's a recipe I tried last week and it's now a new favorite:

Mizuna in Korean Dressing

1/2 a colander of mizuna Greens (cut off the bottom stems as they can be stringy)
2 tsp. soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
1 clove garlic
2 tsp. sesame seeds

Boil the mizuna in a roomy pan until it turns bright green and is just tender, drain. Meanwhile in a serving bowl mix the soy, oil, and garlic together and set aside. Put the sesame seeds in a heavy frying pan and heat until they are toasted shaking the pan to make sure none of them burn. Take the mizuna and gently squeeze out any excess water you should have a sausage shape of green stuff lay it on a chopping board and slice it. Put the mizuna into the serving bowl and toss gently to cover in the sauce. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve.
