Okay I feel that I made this dish but i did change some things. I used canned black-eyed peas instead of dried frozen greens instead of fresh and grape tomatoes instead of the regular sized ones. I also used potatoes instead of turnips because I had no turnips. (I used what I had in the house.) This is really a good recipe! I followed your instructions except for the dried bean part. The vinaigrette dressing added just the right sweet and acid for the greens. I did add a little red pepper to mine because I like red pepper in greens but this was a super recipe without it! By the way using the canned peas my dish was done in about 20 minutes. Read More

added 6 instead of 2 cloves used some white wine and salt - also cooked it down a bit more and 1 T of chicken stock - also used the canned black eyed peas for a quicker dish and home grown tomatoes added great flavor over store bought. Read More

I used potato instead of turnips (I had none)and it worked out well. I added smoked sea salt at the end of cooking. It was a quick and easy recipe and is super filling with brown rice. I also made the balsamic vinaigrette at home so Yum! Read More

I used kale instead of collards. The combination of turnips and black eyed peas along with the greens is delicious! This is easy to make! Great recipe! Read More
