5 tablespoons margarine

1 turnip bulb, chopped

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

1 (8 to 12-ounce) ham hock, chopped

Pinch salt

1 tablespoon sugar

2 pounds turnip greens, washed, stemmed and chopped

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Pinch freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon horseradish

Pinch wasabi powder

1 tablespoon ham base

2 cups water


  1. In a large, heavy pot over medium heat, add the margarine, onion and ham hock. Saute until onions seem translucent, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, except the turnip greens, and mix together. Add the turnip greens and cook on medium heat, partially covered until tender, stirring occasionally, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. When the greens and turnips are tender it's time to eat.
