Mustard Greens Mozzarella Munchies


When my favorite greens are not in-season I buy them frozen,that are convenient and nutritious at the same time.


Contributing generously to the daily need of fiber (5grams in each cup i.e 4 ounce of the green used) and packed with others nutrients of the mildly bitter mustard greens,these cheesy green munchies are quick to assemble and appeasing to the hunger pangs.
Recipe : Mustard Greens Mozzarella Nuggets ,adapted from Cheesy Spinach Nuggets, courtesy of Mirch Masala
Makes a dozen medium munchies(about 2 inches wide)
Ingredients
8 oz frozen Mustard greens(or spinach), thawed and drained
3/4 cup Partly skimmed Mozzarella cheese,grated
2 tablespoon onions,finely chopped
1 tablespoon flax seed meal
1 teaspoon spice mix of your choice
1/4 cup bread crumbs(fresh or store-bought)
2 green chillies or any other hot peppers,finely chopped
1 tablespoon Chickpea flour or all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon canola oil

Method
Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a medium bowl, combine well all the ingredients except the oil.Take a little of the mixture and shape them round and slightly flatten by placing between the palms. Spread the oil on a baking sheet or large oven proof pan like the cast-iron pan ,
,place the shaped nuggets.Bake for 15-18 minutes,until lightly crisp.Serve warm with herbal tea.
