Sauteéd Garlic Mustard Greens with a Poached Egg

Mustard greens are part of the healthy “dark leafy green” vegetable family. This recipe uses the microwave to quickly steam the sweet potato. But if you prefer the flavor and texture of a roasted potato, it is just as easy to swap roasted for steamed.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 15 min
  • Ready Time : 30 min


2 Servings


  • 4 cups mustard greens, rinsed, very roughly chopped with center rib removed
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely minced or passed through a garlic press
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 avocado, diced
  • 1/2 sweet potato
  • 1 ounce Parmesan, grated
  • Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste
  • Water for steaming


1. Place mustard greens plus two tablespoons water in a large skillet and heat over medium heat
2.  Cook the greens about 1-2 minutes or until wilted

3.  Pierce the sweet potato a few times on each side with fork, wrap in a wet paper towel and microwave for 3 minutes, set aside
4. Add garlic and olive oil to greens, stir to combine and sauté about 3 minutes
5. Bring a pot of water to boil and poach two eggs, cooking each about 2-3 minutes for a runny yolk

6. Dice the cooked sweet potato
7. Pile half the greens onto each plate
8. Top each plate with a poached egg, avocado, sweet potato and cheese
9. Season to taste with salt, cracked black pepper or red pepper flakes
