Braised Turnip Greens with Mustard Sauce (& poached eggs)


  • Fall


sweet spring turnip greens


onion (red or white ideal)

lemon juice


grainy mustard

maple syrup or honey

(preserved lemon, if you have it!)


Chop onions, mince garlic & sautee in oil of choice until soft

Wash and coarsely chop turnip greens

Add a bit of water to pan, add greens, stir & cover. Cook ~5 mins or until soft but not mushy. Stir occasionally to distribute heat.

Poach eggs, if desired.

Meanwhile, make mustard sauce by mixing mayo, grainy mustard, chopped preserved lemon or lemon juice, wee bit of maple syrup or honey to taste.

When greens are sauteed, add a good splash of lemon juice and stir through.

Place poached eggs on plated greens if desired and top all with mustard sauce. 

Optional: this is also delicious with the roasted turnip roots (and radishes!), glazed with a little honey, on the side.
