Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens
1 bunch beets with greens
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp chopped onion
Salt and pepper, to taste
Balsamic Vinegar (optional)
Step One: CLEAN & PREP. Remove greens from beets and set aside. Wash beets thoroughly by scrubbing them in water. Do not peel.
Slice the beets into ¼ inch thick slices.
Step Two: COOK BEETS & BEET GREENS. Saute onion and garlic in oil for a few minutes. Add beets tossing in the pan until coated with oil. Add ¼ cup to ½ cup of water to pan. Cook over medium to medium high heat until water comes to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer.
While beets are cooking, chop the beet greens into 2-3 inch pieces.
Cook beets for 25-30 minutes, or until fork tender. Add greens to beets right at the end of cooking time. Cook and stir until greens are wilted and tender, about 5-7 minutes.
Step Three: SERVE & ENJOY! Serve with salt, pepper, and butter or drizzle a little balsamic vinegar over the top.
