RECIPE: Southern Braised Turnip Greens

Becoming aware that the greens atop some of my favorite root vegetables were edible made me wonder if I had been missing out, so once I started to prepare and experience them first-hand I quickly confirmed that I had. If you’re curious how in the heck you prepare those  turnip, beet, and mustard greens, the following recipe offers a straight-forward approach.


1 lb. of Sunny Side Up Farms turnip greens, thoroughly washed, dried, deveined and torn to pieces

2 pieces of thick bacon

1 tbsp olive oil

¼ cup onion, diced

1/2 cup of chicken stock, vegetable stock or water

1 clove of garlic, finely chopped


heat olive oil in a pan

add bacon and cook until it begins to brown

add diced onion and cook until translucent

add the garlic and greens and saute briefly, then add the stock or water

simmer until water has nearly evaporated, checking consistency of the greens

s+p to taste
