Braised Mustard Greens with Sesame Chickpeas

by Dishing Up the Dirt

Prep Time: 15 minutes  |  Cook Time: 45 minutes  |  Serves: 4


Sesame Chickpeas 

  • 1 15 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • salt and pepper

Braised Mustard Greens

  • 2 teaspoons white miso
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chili Garlic Sauce (or Sriracha) + more to taste
  • 1 large bunch of mustard greens, roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • toasted sesame oil for serving
  • toasted sesame seeds for serving



  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Thoroughly pat the chickpeas dry with a kitchen towel. Place the chickpeas in a bowl with the remainder of the chickpea ingredients and stir until well combined. Place the chickpeas on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake in the oven until golden brown, about 35-45 minutes. Shake the pan every 15 minutes or so and keep a close eye on the chickpeas after the 30 minute mark.
  3. Meanwhile whisk together the miso, warm water and Chili Garlic Sauce or Sriracha–whichever you are using.
  4. In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the mustard greens and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to wilt and turn bright green. Add half of the miso water, cover the pan and continue to cook for about 2 minutes longer. Remove the lid, add a touch more of the miso water (only if the mixture seems a bit dry) and continue to cook for about 2-3 minutes longer.
  5. Stir in the rice vinegar and maple syrup. Toss well. Drizzle the greens with toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds. Serve with roasted chickpeas and enjoy.
