IMG_6637

Give me a BEET! I just love These little red gems especially after a hard workout because there is a component that makes the beet red which also aids in soothing sore muscles. So they taste good and will make me feel good? Serve it up I’m ready for lunch!

What You Will Need:

1 Bunch of Beet Roots, peeled and sliced thin

Beet Root Greens, removed from the red stem, and chopped

1 Garlic Clove, minced

2 Tbsp Shallots, minced

1/2 Tsp Olive Oil

Pinch of salt

*Directions:

Prep Your Mis en Place 😉  and put on some slow music. Today I’m listening to Love Is Stronger Than Pride by Sade swaying slowly to it. Next to me is a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice (thank you Florida) that I like served at room temperature. It tastes soooo much better that way too!

In a large bowl mix the beets with a little water and add some salt to them and toss.

While the beets are roasting, in a pan set to medium high heat, add the beet greens, shallots, garlic, olive oil, and salt.

Cook until the onion is soft and the greens have wilted.
