Preparation

  1. Discard the larger leaves of the turnip greens and try to select the part with the flower keeping just the small leaves. Wash them well.
  2. In a large saucepan place your turnip greens, garlic, cherry tomatoes cut in half, the bay leaves, salt, freshly ground pepper and olive oil.
  3. Cover with a lid a little smaller of the pot so that it can push down the turnip greens while cooking.
  4. Cook until tender over low heat. Usually there is no need to add water but check them anyway, and if needed add some hot water.
