Tasty but quite strong. I like mustard and it made my tabs laugh so be careful.

Would definitely make again though

Didn't use all the butter but still delicious. Simple and really tasty. Will be a regular in my household from now on.

I used 200g of greens for 2 servings and left out the butter and peas. Very tasty way of eating greens, makes them more interesting and versatile and good with foods that I would never have dreamt of adding greens as an accompaniment. It is a regular favorite for me.
