Ingredients

  • Coarse salt
  • 6 pounds mustard greens, rinsed well, tough stems and ribs removed
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 8 ounces Neufchatel cheese, cut into pieces
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Prepare an ice-water bath; set aside. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add half of the mustard greens to the boiling water, a little at a time, pushing them down into the water. Return to a boil and cook greens until tender, about 10 minutes. Using tongs, transfer greens to ice-water bath. Repeat process with remaining greens. Drain and squeeze dry with a kitchen towel. Finely chop and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook until softened, about 6 minutes. Stir in half-and-half and Neufchatel. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened and creamy, about 3 minutes.

  3. Add greens to skillet and cook, stirring, until warmed through, about 3 minutes. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper; serve.
