Turnip Green Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by MSippigirl

Don't be skeptical about the odd combination of ingredients, this hearty Southern soup is really quite tasty! Classic or jalapeno cornbread is a must with this.

This soup is a real keeper. I had to modify it a little according to my ingredients but it's basically the same. I used fresh turnip greens. So I started in the pot with the sausage and onion. I let them brown slightly, then I added the diced greens to the pan and let them wilt a little. Then I added the rest of the ingredients and let it simmer for 1/2 hr. It is colorful and tasty...we loved it.<br/>Thanks!
