Wilted Beet Greens with Pine Nuts

Rather than toss beet greens when you roast beets, try this simple nutty flavored dish.

  • 1 bunch of beet greens
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Rinse beet greens and cut off the stalks in 1″ pieces. Steam the stalks for 3 – 5 minutes until tender and set aside. Saute’ garlic and pine nuts in olive oil and set aside. Steam the beet greens with just the water from rinsing them in a large skillet with the cover on until they are wilted. Add the garlic, pine nuts and salt and pepper to taste.
