Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Make the currant mostarda

In a small sauce pot over medium heat, stir in the mostarda base, currants, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] water. Season with salt and pepper and cook until the mixture thickens slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand while you prepare the rest of the meal.

2

Prep and cook the sausages

  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork, if desired.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausages and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.
While the sausages cook and rest, cook the cauliflower “rice.”

3

Cook the cauliflower “rice”

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the cauliflower “rice,” season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower starts to soften, 3 to 5 minutes [4 to 6 min]. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the cauliflower "rice" cooks, start preparing the remaining ingredients.

4

Prep the remaining ingredients; cook the greens

  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure ½ cup [1 cup].
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.
  • Remove any coarse stems from the mustard greens; coarsely chop the greens.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
In the same pan used for the sausages, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften and brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and greens (the greens in batches if needed) and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the greens and cauliflower “rice” to individual plates and top with the sausages. Garnish with the parsley and serve with the mostarda.
