Instructions
  1. Wash and drain greens. On cutting board, place a large hand full of layered washed greens and roll into a tube. This does not have to be exact. With a sharp knife cut tube of greens and toss into large bowl. Repeat until all leaves are cut into smaller pieces.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large stock pot turn on medium low heat for 1 minute. Add in olive oil.
  3. To stock pot add all greens, chopped turnip roots, rutabaga and water. Stir well and cover with lid. Cook for 15 minutes and stir as needed. If water amount becomes too low, add in another cup of water to help steam the greens.
  4. Cook for 30 additional minutes or until all turnip greens, turnip roots and rutabagas are tender. Add in salt and pepper. I have used a small amount of salt in an effort to reduce sodium. You may add more at the table if needed.
  5. Note: At this point, the greens need a sprinkle of cayenne. Sprinkle cayenne and adjust to your enjoyment.
