Patti Labelle Recipes: Kale With Smoked Turkey
First, I would like to start by dedicating this post to my friend Kelli. Every time I go to Kelli’s house I enjoy good conversation and great food. Once, at her house, I was fixing a plate and grabbed what smelled like regular Collard Greens to me. Both the shape and texture of the greens were different but I thought nothing of it. I love greens and I figured that she probably just mixed them in the pot, like my grandmother would do. You know, Mustards with Collards and Turnips.
Anyway, the greens were so good. But imagine my surprise when she told me that the greens were Kale cooked with Smoked Turkey. While I wasn’t able to get a recipe from her, the next time I had a taste for greens I went where I go to get all of my recipes from, Pinterest.
I post a lot of easy recipes on Instagram so make sure you are following me there.
I stumbled upon what looked like another one of Queen Patti Labelle Recipes.
Patti Labelle Recipes : Kale and Smoked Turkey Edition
This recipe Is quick, simple, easy, cheap and delicious. Collard Greens will always have a place in my heart because I was raised on them but Kale is now my new favorite.
I tweaked this recipe from the original, just a tad to omit the onions.
FYI you will need a big pot for this recipe, about this size.

Patti Labelle’s Kale with Smoked Turkey Leg
- 6 bunches of Kale
- 2 Chicken bullion cubes
- 2 Cups of water
- 1/2 cup of Grapeseed oil
- Smoked Turkey wing or leg, cut into bite size pieces (save the bone)
- Black pepper (to taste)
Cooking time: 40 minutes
Wash and remove most stems from kale, but not all. Fill pot with 2 cups water and Grapeseed oil. Bring water to boil and add kale and diced turkey leg (and bone for more flavor). Stir occasionally and add chicken bullion cubes and black pepper. Cook on low heat for 30 minutes. Kale should be tender but not soggy.
Remove bone and serve.
