Mess o' Greens

  • servings: 12




  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 medium leeks, white and light-green parts only, cut into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
  • 1 smoked turkey wing (4 to 6 ounces), cut into 3-inch pieces
  • 3 pounds greens, such as collard, mustard, turnip, and kale, washed thoroughly, trimmed, and torn into pieces
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Step 1

    Heat olive oil in a large stockpot or casserole over medium-high heat until hot, 2 to 3 minutes. Add leeks and garlic; stir to coat. Cook, stirring, until leeks are softened but not brown, about 3 minutes. Add red-pepper flakes, smoked turkey wing, and greens; if necessary add greens in several batches.

  2. Step 2

    Add wine; cover. Steam greens, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes. Uncover, add salt and pepper, and cook, tossing occasionally, 3 minutes more. Discard turkey and garlic, and serve.
