Slow-Cooker Sausage and Greens Stew With Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes December 20, 2013

This recipe was phenomenal. I had everything at home (it called for kale but I had turnip greens that were frozen from my garden) and it was simple to put together. Great flavors. The mashed potatoes were great and it all just melded together.


  • 1 pound sweet Italian sausage links, casings removed and broken into pieces
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 large russet potatoes (about 1 pound)
  • 1 small bunch turnip greens
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup olive oil, plus more for serving



Combine the sausage, onion, tomatoes and their juices, tomato paste, garlic, 1 cup water, turnip greens and ¾ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Nestle the potatoes in the liquid.


Cover and cook until the potatoes are tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total recipe time).


Transfer the potatoes to a medium bowl. Add the sour cream, oil, and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper to the bowl and mash.

Serve the stew topped with the mashed potatoes. Drizzle with more olive oil, if desired.
