Sautéed Turnips with Garlic Scapes

Tossed with flavorful garlic scapes, these turnip and greens are incredibly tender thanks to a quick simmer in chicken stock.

Ingredients:
1 bunch Tokyo Market turnips with greens
2-3 garlic scapes, finely minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chicken stock
¼ cup golden raisins, plumped in water and drained

Method:
1. Thoroughly wash turnips, then trim greens from turnip bulbs. Set greens out on a paper towel to drain. Meanwhile, trim turnip bulb ends and thinly slice. Then, coarsely chop greens.

2. Heat garlic scapes in oil over medium heat in a large skillet until garlic begins to sizzle. Add the turnips and greens. Turn and coat with oil as you wilt the greens.

2. Add broth. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer 3 to 5 minutes to soften.

3. Transfer turnips, greens and garlic to a serving platter and top with plumped golden raisins.
