Collard or Turnip Greens with Smoked Turkey Recipe
There's nothing better than a huge, heaping plate full of soul food! These greens with smoked turkey are the perfect addition to that plate! I love some fried catfish and chicken, baked mac & cheese and cornbread along with some of these greens. That's one great meal! When you cook these, make sure to give your self a few hours for them to simmer while you are preparing the rest of the food. They are so full of flavor and pretty healthy too. Enjoy!
Collard or Turnip Greens with Smoked Turkey (print recipe)
What you need:
1 pound collard or turnip greens, or a mixture of both rinsed, and chopped into bite sized pieces
1 medium onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/2- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
salt and pepper
1- 1 pound smoked turkey leg
Combine all ingredients except the turkey leg in a large stock pot. Add enough water to cover 3/4 of the greens. Add turkey leg. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 2-3 hours.
Remove the turkey leg during cooking, remove meat, cut into bite sized pieces, and add back to the greens. Serve with a few dashes of hot sauce.
