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!

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 Read More

Why discard all the tasty bacon fat just to replace with olive oil?! I kept the fat on & used it to sauté. It turned out great Read More

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. Read More

I also doubled the recipe of beet greens since I didn't have any kale either but at the very end I splashed a little apple balsamic vinegar over it. Gave it a touch of tang and it reminded me of the wilted greens my mom and grandmother would make using sugar and vinegar at the end. Read More

I was looking what was left in the garden and what I had in the fridge. I googled kale, beets and bacon and happily found this recipe. I doubled the quantities, but otherwise didnt change anything. This is really delicious and really easy to make. I hadnt used beet leaves or stems before so that was a treat. Read More
