Taste of Tuesday

Here's another recipe using mizuna.  Mizuna is similar in taste to arugula when raw so if you don't have a source for mizuna, you might try arugula.  We were able to make this with our freshly-dug red thumb fingerling potatoes - delicious!

Mizuna with Steamed Red Potatoes and Goat Cheese*
  • 2 or 3 cups mizuna, washed
  • 2 red potatoes
  • olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • sea salt
  • 2 T. goat cheese
Wash, cube and steam the potatoes until just tender. Place in bowl. Crush garlic onto potatoes and drizzle with olive oil. Season well with sea salt. Toss the mixture well. Roughly chop the mizuna, stems and all, and add to potato mixture. Toss again. Crumble goat cheese on top and it’s ready to eat. The end result is sort of like a warm salad, with the greens warm, but not wilted. 
Bon appetit!
