    Butter, salted, 2 teaspoons
    Pepper, red or cayenne, 1 tsp or to taste
    shallot, 2 tbsp
    Garlic, 4 cloves, sliced
    *365 Organic Diced Tomatoes, 1.5 cup
    Turnips, 1 cup, cubes
    Turnip Greens, 4 cup, chopped
    Chicken Broth, 1 fl oz
    Water, tap, 1 cup
    Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Heat wok or heavy sauce pan in med high to high. Put 2 tsp butter and crushed red pepper till the butter has melted.
Add chopped shallots and sautee until it starts to get translucent. Add garlic and sautee until onions have just started to become golden brown. Add rinsed and drained diced tomatoes and diced turnips and let them cook till tomatoes have been cooked slightly. Add the fresh turnip greens and fold into the tomatoes, onion, garlic mixture.
Add Water and Chicken Broth to the Greens Mixture. Cover and let simmer in low for 30-35 minutes.
Add sea salt to flavor at the end.
Add the cooked Basmati rice to this for a complete meal.
Any kind of broth or stock would work fine, whatever you have on hand, which I always have homemade chicken broth. Could be vegetarian dish with vegetable broth though.

    I have a garden full of greens and needed a new healthy way to cook them, so THANKS! I used more greens than 4 cups, but wish I had used at least half as much red pepper. VERY hot for my taste, but I've rarely cooked with red pepper, so wasn't sure what "my taste" needed. - 11/1/10
