  • About


  • 2 lb mustard greens
  • 2 turnips, minced
  • 2 stalks of celery, minced


Wash the greens and shred finely. Shake off excess water, pack into a large saucepan, and sprinkle over the turnips and celery. Cook very gently until softened - 30-40 minutes should be enough. The greens should produce enough liquid to allow cooking without burning, but check after 10 minutes and add a little water if necessary. Drain and then purée in a blender. Return to the pan.
