Lemon garlic turnip greens are a quick and easy way to make leafy greens taste good. They make a delicious side dish or convenient meal prep component.

Preheat a large cast iron skillet (or other heavy skillet) over medium-high heat.
While the skillet is getting hot, quickly chop the turnip greens into smaller pieces if desired. I like to take a handful of greens at a time and run a knife through like I'm creating ribbons of turnip greens. Mince garlic and set aside.
Once the skillet is hot, add oil and let oil get hot (takes about 30 seconds).
Add turnip greens to hot skillet and oil and cook quickly, stirring every 30-60 seconds. After 3-4 minutes as turnip greens have quickly been cooking down, add minced garlic and cook another minute or two, stirring occasionally.
Add lemon juice at the end of cooking. If you're meal prepping the turnip greens and want them to retain a brighter, prettier green color, wait to add lemon juice just prior to serving and eating. (You can add some lemon wedges to your meal prep containers and squeeze over fresh in the moment).
