Pro Tips

Root Vegetables! It’s the flavor that moves me. Turnips have such a rich flavor that is delicious on its own. The recipe calls for greens and bacon. Add those two things and you have a meal. If you prefer not to add the bacon, just know you will have a delicious vegetarian meal, which fills you up.
