Looking for a quick soul food recipe for Thanksgiving that’s the “bomb?” Then try Pastor Joyce’s “Twenty Minute Greens” below:

Pastor Joyce’s 20 Minute Greens


5 strips thick cut bacon chopped (semi frozen will chop easier)

(Don’t eat pork? Too bad for you 🙂 Try smoked turkey)

3 TBSP olive oil

1- 1/2 onion chopped

2 cloves of garlic chopped

pinch red pepper flakes to taste

1 box of chicken stock (32 oz)

1 pinch of sugar

4 bags of pre-picked, pre-washed and pre-cut greens

(2 bags of turnip and2 bags of mustard)

Salt to taste

In a large stock pot brown the bacon over a medium heat in the olive oil

Once the bacon is brown, pour off some of the bacon fat and olive oil based on your desired taste.

Add the onion and let it begin to cook until transluscent

Add the garlic and pepper flakes, cook one more minute

Pour in the entire box of chicken stock and (pinch) of sugar

Turn on high and bring to a boil

Add all 4 bags of greens one at a time as they cook down and shrink in size

Once all greens are soft, turn heat to medium low heat and cook until tender

Salt to taste.

Another great taste addition is 3 TBSP of the vinegar from a jar of pickled pepperoncini peppers.

Hope you enjoy! Love Pastor Joyce
