    greens Recipe Remix: Southern Style GreensYou don’t need a holiday or Sunday dinner to make a super delicious pot of greens. All you need is a little time and a little love to make this super simple recipe.  For this recipe, I used collard greens, mustard greens, and turnip greens. I hope you enjoy!


    3 bunches of collard, turnip, and mustard greens, rinsed, trimmed, and chopped (I chop some of the stems too, why not? you paid for it!!!)
    1 pound of smoked turkey wings or tails
    8 cups of water
    1 tablespoon of garlic powder
    1 tablespoon of onion powder
    1 tablespoon of Kosher salt
    1 tablespoon of black pepper
    2 tablespoons of your favorite Cajun seasoning
    salt & pepper to taste
    1/2 cup of sugar
    1 tablespoons of red pepper flakes

    Let’s Cook!

    1. Dump the greens, smoked turkey wings or tails and water into the pot and bring to a boil. Allow to cook on medium heat for about 30 minutes. The greens should be fragrant and they should have cooked down some.

    HINT: If you adjust your cooking time, the stems can be just as soft as the greens.

    **Also, remember, many people add the seasoning while cooking, but it’s important to add the seasoning AFTER.**

    2. After about 45 minutes, add all the seasonings along with more water, if needed. Allow the collard greens to cook on simmer for about 10. Then serve and enjoy warm.
