Turnip Greens

Yield 6 servings


  • 1 bunch (about 3 pounds) turnip greens
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Hot sauce (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Cut off and discard tough stems and discolored leaves from greens. Wash greens thoroughly in cold water several times; drain slightly. Set aside.

  2. Sauté onion in oil in a large Dutch oven until tender. Add greens, sugar, salt, and pepper. Cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, 1 1/2 hours or until greens are tender. Serve with hot sauce, if desired.
