Cooking With Mustard

So much more than an essential topping for hot dogs, mustard is a craftier condiment than it gets credit for. Its irresistible zip can instantly upgrade sandwiches, sauces, mashed potatoes and a wide range of proteins. Plus, chefs have long known that mustard beautifully emulsifies ingredients in salad dressings.

Part of the family of plants that includes radish, kale and Brussels sprouts, these yellow and brown seeds are rich in selenium, a potent antioxidant linked to lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. As far as condiments go, mustard is also praised by nutritionists for being low in kilojoules and nefarious ingredients that plague many of its counterparts. Here’s how to perk up a range of dishes with mustard.
