I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first picked this, but Aya likes greens so I thought I’d give it a go. The cakes turned out great. They had a really good flavor and texture (for a meatless patty). They were a little on the dry side, but I could see this being a good patty for a veggie burger with a honey mustard sauce. However, the turnip greens were so awful we didn’t eat them. This was the first thing I’ve cooked that I found to be completely inedible. I know, I know, “turnip greens” should have been my first clue. I’ve had beet greens, collard greens, and mustard greens before and didn’t mind them so I figured turnip greens couldn’t be much different. Maybe it was the way they were cooked with the beer, but ugh, so nasty.
