Turnip Greens

Turnip greens are currently in season. They are an amazing source of vegetable protein and really good for you (but don’t tell your kids). They are a wonderful vegetable to have with a few other vegetables of a side dish to a meat. You can make these any way you want and not screw them up. They take flavor like any other green.
