Directions: How to Cook The East: Velvety-Warm Mustard-Pepper Sauce
A full recipe of this sauce is enough for about 1 1/2 pounds of cooked fish, seafood or firm cubed tofu.
Place greens, pepper, tomato, cilantro, chiles and garlic in a blender or food processor and process until smoothly pureed. Set aside.
Heat oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add pureed mixture and cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until sauce is thick, 12 to 15 minutes.
Makes about 2 cups.
