Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This is my first ever recipe to share - I created it only after I couldn't find one that intrigued me. This was the first time I ever used the greens of beets. It was amazing and I will definitely have this as a green staple in our house! I hope you enjoy!"

Delicious. I used 2 slices of turkey bacon and changed the kale out for more beet greens. Quick, easy, healthy and tasty.

Use only beet greens (did not have any kale). Used hard chirizo instead of bacon, add one finely chopped Fresno pepper with the garlic. Fantastic, will make again

Will make it again. My grandkids love it as does my salad hating son!!!!

While I didn't love this my husband did. I'm just not a huge a kale fan. The recipe makes a small portion and I would double if I was making this for more than 1-2 people.
