A wonderful weekday side dish that’s ready in minutes. Top with French fried onions and take to a potluck or serve as a Thanksgiving dinner side. The nice thing about this side is that you can turn it into a vegetarian dish by simply adding soy instead of ground meat. Or, if you like your greens all by themselves, leave out the soy or meat and serve alone. Either way should be great.

Ingredients (for 2 people)

1/2 16 Oz bag of frozen turnip greens
1 cup of soy crumbles, ground turkey or beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) of butter
A pinch of nutmeg
Salt and pepper to taste

Hearty Turnip Greens


1. Chop onion and melt butter in pan on medium heat.

2. Add soy, turkey, or beef, and onions and saute until lightly browned.

3. Microwave frozen turnips for 2 minutes and add to pan. Add nutmeg (goes great with dark greens), salt, and pepper.

4. Saute for another 5-7 minutes. Serve warm.
