friend offering you the bounty of her own garden. I've eaten turnip raw (peeled and salted), oven roasted, added to mashed potatoes (oh, my children still mock me for that effort), but no experience with turnip greens. Up till now.

Slick a low and wide saucepan with olive oil. Add a two cloves garlic, one meaty shallot, and saute briefly, until tender. Sprinkle in a half teaspoon of chili pepper flakes, and whisk around.
