Side Dishes

MRC gardeners from all over the globe enjoy mustard greens, but the Bhutanese and the Congolese make especially good use of them. Gundruk offers abundant probiotics and minerals to a traditional diet consisting primarily of starchy grains and roots. With a flavor similar to sauerkraut, the Bhutanese enjoy it as a condiment to rice, or as an appetizer or side dish.
