Hakurei Turnips with Greens
4 medium size hakurei turnips with their greens
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup of coarsely chopped onion or 2 shallots, thinly sliced
1 large clove of fresh garlic (see picture above), slivered
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp water
1/4 cup diced, cooked bacon (optional)
Cut the greens from the turnips, remove large tough stems, steam for 2 minutes, then drain, chop and set aside.
Peel any blemishes off the turnips, cut into chunks and set aside.
Melt the butter in a skillet, add the onion and garlic, then saute for about a minute. Add the turnip chunks and continue to saute until the turnips are a nice, tan brown. Add the chopped greens, vinegar and water, cover and steam for about 3-4 minutes.
Sprinkle with bacon if desired.
