Turnip Greens

Cooked turnip greens have a very robust (heavy) flavor.  They can be eaten as a side dish or cooked with other greens or veggies in various recipes.  Select turnip greens that are crisp and green and free of wilt or discolored edges.  Turnip greens are a great source of vitamin A and K, beta carotene, and lutein.  See the nutritional chart below.
