I don't remember why I bought frozen chopped turnip greens last year. But I did, and my husband wants me to feed it to our family, even though I'm pretty sure our children won't eat them. Does anyone have any ideas for how to make this appetizing?


May God bless you and His Blessed Mother Mary keep you!  :-)

Maybe try cooking them like collard greens?  I made some on New Year's that turned out great --- sauteed some finely chopped onions in a bit of bacon grease and olive oil; added the greens and sauteed for a few more minutes; poured chicken broth over them to cover.  Let them simmer for about 45 minutes and then ate them atop our black-eyed peas and ham.  They were delicious!

I recently tried a winter greens pesto utilizing turnip greens and found it be delicious in both the soup at the following link and stirred into a shrimp & pea risotto and on sandwiches as well.


My daughter usually balks at turnip greens but ate them up happily in this pesto.
