Chris Kluwe played in the NFL for eight years, but he’s been a gamer for 26 — and he’s tired of the misogyny in today’s …

— God, do I love Chris Kluwe!

Wow!  That is one pissed-off player!

Afraid of vegetables? (YES. Yes, I am.) Don’t know what to do beyond sautee-with-garlic? (YES THAT’S ME.) Yotam Ottolenghi is here to help! Check out his interview on Weekend Edition Sunday — and then try this seriously amazing-looking recipe for peas with sorrel and mustard. And then tell me where the heck to buy sorrel.

Recipe: Peas With Sorrel And Mustard

(Serves four as a side dish.)

10 1/2 ounces/300 grams fresh or defrosted frozen green peas
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
3/4 teaspoon superfine sugar
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups/220 grams green onions, white and green parts, trimmed and sliced on the diagonal into 3/8-inch-/1-centimeter-thick slices
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon black mustard seeds, toasted
6 tablespoons/75 grams Greek yogurt
3 1/2 ounces/100 grams sorrel leaves and stems, coarsely shredded
Salt

Bring a pan of water to a boil, add the peas, and blanch for just 30 seconds. Drain into a colander, refresh under cold water, and set aside.

Place both mustards in a small bowl with the sugar, 3 tablespoons water, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix together to form a smooth paste and set aside.

Place a large saute pan over medium-high heat and add the oil. Once hot, add the green onions and garlic and fry for 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden brown. Turn down the heat to low and add the mustard sauce, peas, 2 teaspoons of the mustard seeds, and the yogurt. Stir for 1 minute until everything is well mixed and the yogurt is warmed through. Remove from the heat, stir in the sorrel, and serve at once, with the remaining 1 teaspoon mustard seeds sprinkled on top.

The environmental impact of oysters, in one photo
The water in both tanks came from the same source. The one on the right has bivalves. Not only do oysters naturally filter the waters in which they live, they can even protect humans from destructive hurricanes. For more, read about New York’s efforts to bring back oyster populations in the once-toxic Hudson River.
Delicious AND helpful. Who knew?
