Member Recipes for Turnip Greens

turnip greens & bacon

I usually use turkey bacon, but, for this true pork bacon just seemed the way to go.

Be prepared: turnip greens are quite bitter. Lots of recipes call for cider vinegar and sugar to cut that. This recipe embraces their bite. If you want something sweet, try a different recipe. But don't be scared of this one - it is savory and delicious and goes really well with my honey dipped oven fried chicken breasts and a side of simple mashed red potatos.

This makes 4 half cup servings.

Braised Beet & Turnip Greens

Simply braising these greens with olive oil, onion, garlic and chile renders them tender and seasoned, making a wonderful complement to meat, fish or grilled, garlic-rubbed toast. Add a little pancetta, chicken stock and pecorino cheese, and the mixture of ingredients forms a tasty topping for pasta. Blend them together with pine nuts and add more olive oil, and you've got a turnip-and- beet green pesto.

When buying turnips or beets, choose those with healthy, vibrant greens. They should be tender, bright and uniform in color, and free from wilting or bruising. Once cut from their vegetable, beet and turnip greens should be used quickly; they will stay fresh for two days in the refrigerator if wrapped in paper towels and stored in a plastic bag. If they do become wilted, chop them finely and use them in soup.Submitted by: ODIANA

Quick Turnip Greens

This is just something I threw together to use up leftover vegetables. The calories are calculated based on the ingredients listed, but the amount of any of the ingredients is flexible. The tomato in this quick stir fry helps boost the iron in the turnip greens.Submitted by: DISCOVERLLH
