Put mustard greens in two quarts of water, add 1/2 cup of roux. Let boil real good. (Keep adding water). Always have about 2 quarts of water. Put onions, celery, bell peppers, salt, pepper to taste. Drain sausage and put in with mustard. Cook on medium heat for about 2 hours (if frozen greens are used, no need boiling). Serve over rice.
