Turnip Greens with Apple Cider Vinegar

This time of year, the farmer’s markets are full of all sorts of greens. A few years ago, I would have never thought I’d eat greens (and like them!). I think this recipe definitely played a role in turning around my opinion of greens – these are fantastic!

Turnip Greens with Apple Cider Vinegar

Adapted from Greenling recipe sheet
Serves 4

2 tsp canola oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
1 bunch turnip greens, stems removed, washed, chopped (about 6 cups chopped greens)
1 cup water

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add canola oil and onions, and cook until onions begin to turn brown. Add the garlic, salt, pepper, and sugar, and cook for about one minute, until the garlic softens.

Add the vinegar and bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add chopped greens and a cup of water. Cover and simmer the greens for about 20 minutes, until they have wilted and lost their brightness. Check for tenderness, then serve.
