Spicy Mustard Greens with Cumin
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 medium onions, coarsely chopped
6 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
2 large bunches mustard greens (about 26 ounces total), coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Heat oil in large wide pot over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté
until soft, about 7 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin seeds, and crushed red
pepper; sauté 3 minutes. Add mustard greens to pot in batches (about 1/3 at
a time) and stir until each batch begins to wilt before adding next, about
3 minutes per batch. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until
greens are very tender, stirring frequently, about 30 minutes. Season with
salt and pepper. Mix in lemon juice.

DO AHEAD Can be made 3 hours ahead. Transfer to bowl and serve hot or at 
room temperature.
