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
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!
Pre heat the oven to 385.
In a large bowl mix the beets with a little water and add some salt to them and toss.
Spread the beets out on a cookie sheet and roast them for about 10 minutes.
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.
Serve up the roasted beets on a plate and top with the greens. That’s it! You now have a wonderful side dish, or a great salad that can be served warm or cold.
Serving Size is 1 Cup of beets, and 1 cup of greens:
