Roasted Turnips with Wilted Greens


4 medium turnips

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

8 thick bacon slices, sliced

1 medium onion, quartered and sliced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 pound turnip greens, stemmed, washed, and thinly sliced

3 tablespoons sherry vinegar

¾ cup chicken stock


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Dice turnips into ½-inch cubes and toss with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast until tender, about 30 minutes. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crispy. Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside. Remove half the bacon fat from skillet. Add onions to skillet and cook until soft. Add garlic and greens and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes. Chop bacon. Stir in vinegar, stock, and bacon. Cover pan and cook 5 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper, fold in roasted turnips, and serve. From Move Over, Turkey.
