Ginger Braised Radish & Turnip Greens
Tender-crisp spicy greens offer a refreshing counterpoint to any main course.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5-6 Minutes
Serves: 4 as a side dish
3 TB Olive oil
5 garlic scapes, diced, or 2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 TB fresh ginger, minced
1 bunch salad turnip greens, well washed and chopped
1 bunch radish leaves, well washed and chopped
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
Parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)
Heat the oil in a large saute pan or skillet over medium heat and cook the garlic and ginger for 3-4 minutes, stirring, or until garlic is tan and beginning to crisp. Add the turnip greens and the radish greens, cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 2-3 minutes or until greens wilt. Remove the lid, sprinkle with the sugar, salt and pepper, and cook, stirring, for another minute or two. Distribute to serving plates and top with Parmesan.
