These baby turnip greens are currently at the Nashville Farmers' Market. Use as you would spinach.

We love the baby turnip greens that were in abundance by the bushel at the Nasvhille Farmers' Market this past February weekend. For $1 a pound, you could get yourself a "big ole' mess of 'em." We brought them home and made a frittata with them, and a quick pasta toss with browned garlic, browned butter and Parmigiana cheese. Their flavor is much milder and texture more tender than standard turnip or collard greens and as a result can be cooked more like arugula or spinach, meaning as little as possible. Get ya a mess of 'em and get cooking. No ham hock or bacon required.
