- TOTAL TIME:
- SERVINGS: 4
Steamed mustard greens are tossed with sambal matah, a raw Balinese sauce made with shallots and lemongrass. It's fragrant and delicious on greens as well as on chicken or fish.
2 tablespoons minced shallots
1 stalk of fresh lemongrass, tender inner white part only, minced (1 tablespoon)
1 kaffir lime leaf, minced (1/4 teaspoon) or 1/4 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 bunch mustard greens (12 ounces), stemmed, leaves coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Sweet potato chips, broken into small pieces, for garnish (optional)
- In a large bowl, combine the shallots, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf, lime juice, coconut oil and soy sauce. Season the sambal matah with salt.
- Bring an inch of water to a boil in a large pot fitted with a steamer. Steam the greens until wilted and tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer the greens to the large bowl. Add the oil and sambal matah and toss to coat. Season with salt.
- Arrange the greens on a platter, garnish with sweet potato chips and serve.
