Sauteed Beet Greens

Rated as 4.48 out of 5 Stars

"My grandmother would pan-fry beet greens with garlic and olive oil. Following her example, I added sun-dried tomatoes and capers for a little more pop! The kids love it and it's quick and easy. Please note, although I have measurements listed, I am a 'pinch here and pinch there' type of cook. You may need to adjust for your personal taste."

I used the stems of the greens, and omitted the capers. The sun dried tomatoes were an unexpected pleasure in this dish! I'll be making this again!

I made this for my supper tonight. I'm also a "pinch of this, pinch of that cook" so I didn't follow exactly. I needed to have a protein, too, so I added 3 oz. of frozen Boca crumbles. Topped it...

First time fixing beet greens. Not bad! But why does the recipe say to discard the stems while the pic shows the stems? I cut the stems into 1 inch pieces and sauteed in a little olive oil un...

I was skeptical about this one because I am not a fan of beets, but we got the tops in our CSA this week. Well, I'm very happy we did because these were great!

My husband usually does most of the cooking in our house but the other night he was engrossed in a TV show so I hit the stove! I wanted a tasty way to prepare beet greens which he had already w...

this was a flavourful and fast side dish.

I accidentally left out the capers the first time and we really liked it. I made it again with the capers as we get a weekly CSA share and have been getting beets somewhat regularly; that time I...
