Turnip Greens Soup

I discovered this recipe in the Alabama Power bill a few months ago. It's pretty darn tasty and also great to eat on New Year's Day, as it contains most of those foods you're required by law to consume on that day.

Turnip Greens Soup

16oz chopped turnip greens
2 cans chicken broth
1 cup black eyed peas
1 can Rotel
3/4c shoepeg corn 
1/2c chopped carrots
1 med onion, quartered 
1lb Polish sausage 
Hot sauce to taste

Slice sausage in 1/2 inch slices and brown in skillet with onion quarters. Mix remainder of ingredients in a Dutch oven and simmer on low for 1 1/2 hours. Serve with cornbread.


  1. That looks down-right delicious! I love almost anything that sits on cornbread. Hearty stuff. Wonder how kale would do for turnip greens?

  2. I've never eaten kale, but I think anything green would be tasty in this! Although, you would have to change the name!
