Dijon mustard, sometimes called brown mustard, is a traditional condiment that was originally named for the town of Dijon in Burgundy, France. This town was the center for mustard production going all the way back to the Middle Ages! The general recipe calls for mustard seeds, from the plant in the cabbage family, as well as vinegar and salt (there are other, non-Paleo versions that include other additives). Since this condiment is very simple and made of relatively non-nutritive ingredients, there is no significant nutrition in mustard apart from some sodium (and this varies a lot, depending on the brand). Some of my recipes that include mustard are:
- Mustard and Rosemary Roasted Chicken
- Beef Tongue with Rosemary Mustard Reduction
- Strawberry-Basil Salad with Toasted Pecans
- Bacon-Wrapped Curry Burgers with Sweet Potato “Buns”
High quality, Paleo-friendly Dijon-style mustard is available from Amazon.
