Brrrr y'all. It's gotten cold out there!! Temps in the high 30s tonight - gonna be a cold one in south Mississippi. Good weekend for some soup & this one can come together pretty quick. Thanks Lisa!


Turnip Green Soup

Shared by Lisa Oliphant Brantley


1 large bag of frozen turnip greens

1 (32 ounce) box of chicken broth

2 cans of great northern beans

1 pkg of Knorr's vegetable soup mix

1 lb smoked sausage cut up


Combine and simmer on the stovetop until heated through, about 30 minutes, let slow cook all day in a crockpot, or Lisa does this in her electric pressure cooker for 20 minutes.


Serve with hot cornbread - of course!




Mary's Notes: I'm thinking throwing in some chopped cooked bacon would be marvelous with this soup & a can of Rotel tomatoes would probably go nicely too. You could certainly substitute fresh whole turnips & greens also - you'll probably want about 3 or 4, though you could do a couple pounds and have some extra greens to eat or freeze. Just throw a ham hock (if you have one) in a large pot of water and bring it to a boil, add the washed greens, peel and cube the turnips, add those, pinch of salt & pepper, pinch of sugar, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the turnips are getting tender. Add turnips and greens to soup ingredients (can also use the water from the turnips - the pot likker - instead of the chicken broth if you like) and cook till soup is warmed through.
