Turnip Greens



After not being able to find escarole or broccoli rabe in the stores down here, I decided to give turnip greens a try. I was pleasantly suprised. I just cut off the bottoms of the stems, steamed them and then tossed with sauted garlic, olive oil, and hot seeds. If I didn't know better I would have thought I was eating broccoli rabe.

Congratulations....I guess that now makes you an Italian r-- n---.
Actually it sounds good, I never tried fresh greens, only frozen package. But probably in Nutley I can only get the broccoli rabe.

Delicious. Try adding a bit of Cajun seasoning while cooking. It packs a nice punch.
