2. Add turnip and cauliflower, sauté for about 5 more minutes and then cover to steam.

3. Then add kale and mushrooms and herbs. Continue to sauté, stirring occasionally until all vegetables are soft.

4. Add crumbled Feta cheese if using and a cup of Mary’s Gone Crackers Savory Crumbs. Mix thoroughly.
