1 Tbsp olive oil
1 yellow onion
2 cloves garlic
2 cups vegetable broth
1 lb. fresh mustard greens, stemmed and cut
1/2 Tbsp smoked paprika
1/2 Tbsp sugar
Freshly cracked pepper
1 pinch crushed red pepper


1.If your mustard greens did not come pre-cut and with stems removed, run a sharp knife down the center of each leaf to remove the woody stems. Cut the remaining leaves into 2-inch strips. Rinse the cut leaves well in a colander.
2.Slice the onion thinly and mince the garlic. Sauté the onion and garlic in a large pot over medium heat with the olive oil until the onions are soft (about 5 minutes). Add the vegetable broth and heat until steaming.
3.Add the cut mustard greens, a couple handfuls at a time, stirring until wilted and there is room to add more to the pot. Once they're all mostly wilted, add the smoked paprika, sugar, some freshly cracked pepper, and a pinch of red pepper flakes, if desired.
4.Place a lid on the pot, allow the broth to come to a simmer, then turn down to medium-low. Let the pot simmer for at least 30 minutes, or longer if desired. Taste the greens and adjust the salt, pepper, or sugar if needed (if your broth is low-sodium, you may want to add salt at this time). Serve the greens with a slotted spoon to leave the excess broth behind.
