Don't toss your beet greens. Cook them and serve them alongside the beets. Modified from simple recipes.
Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 2
  • 1 pound beet greens
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped onion or to taste
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • ¾ cup of water
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ⅙ cup of cider vinegar
  1. Chop the greens into the bite size pieces.
  2. Saute the onions in olive oil for about five minutes. Add the garlic and saute for another minute. Add water, sugar and red pepper.
  3. Toss in beet greens. Mix well. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes or until tender. Stir in vinegar.
The vinegar is just a splash, really. Don’t make the mistake of adding too much. I normally just add a few slices of onion.
