Infarm Green Mizuna

Green Mizuna

A subspecies of the Brassica Juncea family that includes the Japanese giant red mustard and the Korean red mustard, this piquant Japanese mustard originated in China but was later cultivated in Japan.

Taste

With a peppery, piquant and slightly bitter after taste, Mizuna’s flavor profile is a rather mild and sweet green mustard.

Nutrition

Like other brassica leaves, Mizuna contains glucosinolates. These compounds give brassicas, like Brussel Sprouts and Cabbage, their bitter flavor and prevent the development of certain cancers.

Kitchen Use

When cooking it can be pickled, stir-fried, simmered or added to hot pot dishes. Alternatively, add Mizunaraw to a mixed salad alongside other Asian mustard greens.
