1/4 lb low-fat smoked turkey sausage, diced
6 cups water
1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 teaspoons Splenda Granulated
1 lb fresh turnip greens, washed
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons canola oil
Louisiana hot sauce, optional
In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, heat the 1 teaspoon of canola oil, tilting pan to completely oil the bottom. Add the diced sausage and brown, stirring frequently. Remove the sausage and set aside.
To the same pan, add the water, onions, vinegar, and Splenda; bring to a boil over high heat. Gradually add the greens, bring to a boil and stir the greens until wilted. Reduce heat to simmer and cook, covered, for half an hour or until tender. Drain the greens; reserve 1/2 cup of the liquid.
Return the greens, reserved liquid, sausage, salt, and 2 teaspoons of canola oil to the Dutch oven. Allow to stand for 5 minutes for flavors to absorb.
Serve with the hot sauce, if desired.
