ABOUT: "A three-green combinationpeppery mustard, sweet turnip and
slightly pungent dandelioncooked with rice makes a healthful low-fat main
dish for spring and summer. If you can't find these particular greens at
your market, others, including spinach, may be substituted."

TIPS: A must when working with greens is to remove bitter stems and wash
them well with cold running water to remove dirt. The same is true for
leeks. Cut leeks in half before rinsing to get at dirt between the layers.
