Balsamic Beets and Beet Greens
Warm, nutritious and delicious way to use beets and beet greens together.
2 bunches beets with greens (about 6 medium beets)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
sea salt to taste
1 red onion
¼ cup walnuts
1. Separate the beets from the greens. Wash greens thoroughly, cut into strips and set aside.
2. Scrub the beets and place whole in a steamer to cook until tender – 30-40 minutes.
3. Peel beets by running under cold water, then cut into bite-size pieces. Toss with lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and sea salt.
4. Slice onion into thin half moons. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sauté onions for 3 minutes. Add sliced greens and cook uncovered for 5 to 7 minutes, until wilted.
5. Just before serving add beets to the beet greens and heat 1 to 2 minutes. Serve beets and greens garnished with chopped walnuts.
