Need Other Ingredients
Mustard green flowers are indeed cooked as a side dish type of food. So, we really need other ingredients to serve them. In addition, the size of the mustard green flowers will become smaller when cooked. So, make sure you serve mustard green flowers with other ingredients so that it becomes quite filling.
In this recipe, I used a sweet potato, as well as Tempeh to serve stir-fried mustard green flowers.
I'm going to cook them with the air fryer method. Besides being able to save time, of course using an air fryer feels simpler to me than using an oven. But of course you can roast Tempeh and sweet potato in the oven if you don't have an air fryer.
Air Fryer Sweet Potato and Tempeh
Before cooking mustard green flowers, I first cooked sweet potato and Tempeh. So, while waiting for them to cook in the air fryer, I can work on a side of mustard green flowers. Simply save time.
First, I preheat the air fryer for 5-10 minutes. My air fryer doesn't have temperature settings. So I just timed it. You can set your equipment to the temperature normally used for roasting food, about 400-450 degrees F.
Don't forget to wash the sweet potato pieces and dry them. Then, I put the sweet potato pieces in the air fryer basket.
I also put the Tempeh pieces in the same air fryer basket. My air fryer basket is enough for all of that. That's really great for saving cooking time.
When serving, I serve sweet potato pieces like lollipop shapes with a stick of ice cream. Oh, that's cute. ❤️
Stir-Fried Mustard Green Flowers
For the seasoning, I used ingredients that I usually use to cook other vegetables. It's like a highlight that should not be forgotten. Here are the ingredients for the flavor:
- 2 tablespoons of chopped onion and red onion
- 2 bay leaves. Dried or fresh one. But this one is optional. You can use other herbs to add fragrance to the dish.
- 2 tablespoons of sweet soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt or according to your taste
