Mustard Greens

My favorite gardner (AKA spouse, AKA better half) planted a lot of mustard greens in her garden this year. All the recipes she can find are variants on "sauté in olive oil and garlic".

Since she's on a low-fat diet and allergic to garlic, this won't work. Does anyone have a good, low-fat, no-garlic recipe for mustard greens?

I had never heard of cooking mustard greens until I was older. We used it in salads or on sandwiches as a change of pace, but watch out for older, late summer mustard greens. They can be really hot!! My bother and I used to have contests to see who could eat the most mustard greens off of the large plants that my parents had let ''go to seed''.:D

As for cooking, I love to saute them in butter and bacon fat. I also think that creamed mustard greens would be really good, though I cant' say that I have ever tried it.
